NY Cyclists! This is your call to action! Help get a "3 foot law" passed in NY - Contact your State Legislators to ask for their support !
3 feet will make a major difference in making our roads safer. With your
help, we can make NY a safer state to bike. Please take a moment to email
your legislators asking them to support a safe passing amendment that
would require all motor-vehicles drivers to give bicyclists at least 3
feet of space when passing:
Currently, NY's Safe Passing Law is ambiguous and difficult to enforce.
Every driver can interpret what "a safe distance" is in their
own way. This needs to change. With your help and a small number of additional
words, we can it happen this year.
A big thank-you goes out to Senator Tom O'Mara and Assemblyman Phil
Steck who are the co-sponsors of this bi-partisan amendment A9189 / S6649.
