Give room for roadway safety

I ride with the local Easy Riders cyclist group and we thought your readership should be aware of the new ‘3-foot rule’ while driving.

Our desire is to continue to ride as safely as possible; many motorists pass us quite closely!

RCW 46.61.110(2)(a): The statute now requires a motorist passing a bicyclist on a single travel lane road to give the bicyclist at least 3 feet of space “where practicable” and otherwise do so safely – which includes slowing to a “safe speed for passing relative to the speed of the (vulnerable) individual.”
