In the wake of several vehicle collisions that have left bicyclists dead or injured, our question of the week is about SB 1464.
The proposed state law would make it a legal requirement for automobiles to give bicyclists a minimum clearance of three feet when passing. The Davis Bike Club supports it, as you can see here.
The law would require "drivers on two-lane roads to cross the solid double yellow centerline, when safe to do so, to give bicyclists at least three feet," according to the Davis Bike Club statement.
SB 1464 has passed the state Senate and is up for a vote by the Assembly Friday. How would you vote if it were up to you? Share your thoughts below.
