AB 1371 – Three-Foot Passing Bill – Moves Forward to Senate Floor

GIVE ME 3's first official poster, at the bus stop at 1st & Main

“Give Me 3,” will it become a law this time?

Although two recent  attempts at passing legislation that would require motorists safely leave at least three feet of space when overtaking bicyclists have failed due to unclear language, advocates of such a law have not given up. Back in February, Assemblymember Steven Bradford introduced AB 1371, the latest iteration of a three-foot passing bill. AB 1371 sailed through an Assembly vote in May and yesterday it passed with the Senate Standing Committee on Transportation and Housing10-0. Next up is a vote on the Senate Floor, if you would like to see the bill move forward, contact your local Senator and let them know you support AB 1371.
