Better than the 3-foot law–yeah, 4 feet! Some of the characters who pass us appear to be afraid of the yellow line. I like that the law specifies the motorist may cross the yellow line. That’s assumed, I think, most places but not by all drivers.
In fact, I’d like to have such a conversation in our states. Oh, that’s right, we’ve had it, but locally I heard almost nothing. –corrie
The new law requires motorists to leave a 4-foot “cushion of safety” when passing a bicyclist. To achieve this cushion, drivers may cross a roadway’s center line when passing a bicycle on the left, but only when opposing traffic allows. Drivers attempting to turn left must also yield the right of way to bicycle riders traveling in the opposite direction.
