Give Us Three Feet When Passing

From the NJ Bikes & Walk Coalition:

Make your voice heard in Trenton by signing an online petition here for a 3-Foot Safe Passing Law for New Jersey cyclists, walkers, runner, joggers and other vulnerable users. Read about the bill here.

The coalition adds: The language isn’t perfect, but it is a beginning and a way to get the word out that all vulnerable users need to be protected. We also need to have a bill that will be passed and not continue to languish in committees. Please support the petition and your right to ride, walk, jog and run safely on New Jersey roadways.

One Response to “Give Us Three Feet When Passing”

    Three feet? Thats it? I give at least 5, maybe 8 or more when possible….and slow down. If people just did that, we wouldn’t have so many problems or pedestrian fatalities. You’ve probably seen my support of higher speed limits, but me and my girlfriend were walking down on 206 in Lawrenceville at night…sidewalk was narrow and we were close to the road. All of a sudden, a minivan comes out of nowhere driving 70 mph or something…very close to us too. Scared the living crap out of me. You know, if you want to drive fast and hit a deer at night, fine, be my guest…but at least don’t do it where people are walking. Guy was followed and caught by a cop, at least.
