YADACAL: California Cyclists Will Get 3-Foot Buffer Under New Law

Yet Another Dum Ass California Law.  Completely and utterly worthless.

Gov. Jerry Brown announced Monday he has signed legislation requiring California drivers to stay at least 3 feet away when passing bicyclists.

The proposal from Assemblyman Steven Bradford, D-Gardena, is intended to better protect cyclists from aggressive drivers. It states that if drivers cannot leave 3 feet of space, they must slow down and pass only when it would not endanger the cyclist's safety.

The law will go into effect Sept. 16, 2014. Current law requires a driver to keep a safe distance when passing a bicyclist but does not specify how far that is.
Aggressive drivers will continue to NOT provide safe clearance between them and the cyclists.
