I just learned about California Assembly Bill 60, which proposes to make motorists pass by at least 3 feet when overtaking a bicyclist. This is a good piece of legislation, which should reduce the number of injuries and deaths to cyclists.
You can read the proposed legislation (and learn the bill's status) by clicking here.
Please, email your representatives in the assembly and state congress. (Click here to find out who they are, or their contact information.) In your subject line, state "Regarding: Support for AB60".
I also recommend contacting Assemblyman Nava to show your support. (Click in the "Click here to support bicycle safety" box to send him email)
Thank you for helping make our streets safer!
