Three Feet for Safety Act – Give Cyclists Their Space or Pay

I have a lot to say about cyclists in LA, Cyclavia and how cars and cyclists should co-exist in this city. That’ll be a post for another day, but for now, be aware there’s a new law on the books Assembly Bill 1371 — it will cost you if you don’t give cyclists 3′ space when passing them. The law takes effect on September 16th. Tell everyone you heard about it here first!

    I’m all for giving cyclists the 3 feet, or even a Meter if it’s a good day. I just ask, in return that they:

    1. STOP at stop signs.
    2. USE the bike lanes that were painted for them, and stay off the sidewalks.
    3. Put your foot down while you are stopped waiting for a light, instead of doing that seesaw steering thing where I don’t know where you’ll end up, because, yes, I do want to turn right on a red light.
