What is the 3 Ft. Law?
Three Bills have been introduced in Indiana, for the passing of the 3 Ft. Law. It all has to do with Bicycles. Since they have to share the road with the cars, they want to safeguard the riders of these bikes. When passing the bicycles, they was to make it a law that the driver must allow 3 Ft distance between the two.
The three Bills related, include the distance issue, the correct procedure, when passing and pulling in front of the cyclist and the penalties for the violations.
Eight cities, in Indiana have already adopted this law, while the rest of the State awaits passage. The cities that have already put this law in place are: Indianapolis, Carmel, Lafayette, West Lafayette, Seymour, South Bend and Elkhart.
It's another sign to read, as we are driving down the road, but it is a necessary one, that will help protect our children, college students and others that are trying to stay in shape and also help save the polution of the world one pedal at a time.
