Protecting cyclists in California
- If you are a Californian and interested in establishing a safe-passing law to help protect people using bicycles on the state's roads, please sign our petition on SignOn.org:
Nineteen US states have so far passed such a law. Our legislature has also twice passed one, but Gov. Brown has vetoed the law both times.
There is a brief explanation on the petition page.
A law requiring motorists to pass cyclists at a safe distance would help in our current efforts to expand travel choices beyond the car-only option so common in California.
