GiveMe3 is CalBike’s campaign to get drivers to give a safe three feet of clearance when passing a bicyclist. Assembly Bill 1371 amends the Vehicle Code to specify three feet as the safe passing distance. Twenty-one other states have enacted similar legislation. Tell Governor Brown it’s time California did the same!
Over forty percent of fatal bike crashes are caused by motorists passing unsafely. And yet, Governor Brown vetoed our previous two “3 foot” bills. With your help today, the third time could be the charm. Please send this email urging Governor Jerry Brown to sign AB 1371, and require California drivers to give a safe distance when they pass you on your bicycle.
Please take just a moment now to follow the links above and tell Governor Brown to sign the bill.
