S.1807 – An Act to protect vulnerable road users (2 Responses)

S.1807 – “An Act to protect vulnerable road users” would create a definition of vulnerable road users, which would include but not be limited to cyclists. It would further define the safe passing distance of “vulnerable road users,” based on the speed of the passing vehicle. Under 30 miles per hour would require a minimum passing distance of 3 feet, adding 1 foot per 10 miles per hour after that; 4 feet at 40 MPH, 5 feet at 50 MPH and so on.
