Share the Road Cycling Coalition has been working on a 3-foot passing law for over a year with the NDP and now it’s finally happening. On Tuesday, May 18, NDP Transit critic Cheri DiNovo will introduce a private members bill requiring vehicle drivers to give 3-feet of clearance when passing cyclists.
So-called “3 foot laws” have been passed in 15 U.S. states, and go a long way in educating drivers and making cycling safer in both urban and rural settings.
Cyclists and friends are invited to join in the launch of this Bill at Queen’s Park on Tuesday, May 18:
9:30 am – Rally for Safe Cycling – bring your bikes and your kids and show your support for a new provincial 3 foot law. Front Lawn of the Main Legislature Building, Queen’s Park Circle (just north of College St. and University Avenue)
10:00 am – Media conference. Queen’s Park Media Studio.
