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: http://ow.ly/Y8eUt

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.
