    Undercover Cops Bike to Enforce 3' Safe Passage Law

    Give that cyclist more space; it could be a police officer | kens5.com San Antonio

    Keep this in mind if your community is reluctant to pass a 3' passing law because enforcement is "impossible".

    I'm fortunate that most people are more than willing to give plenty of room here. Unfortunately, the ones that don't are always the same type: out of state, [insert luxury car here], or yapping on the phone.

    I live in Kunming, China. I would feel lucky to get 3 millimeters, much less 3 feet!

    ^^ My son says Beijing is the same. Cyclists are some of the greatest crowders of other cyclists.

    While Kunming has more cyclists and e-bikes, Beijing certainly has more deadly traffic, and more evil drivers!!

    Well I`ll be...
    I wonder how they`re going to measure. And SIX feet for commercial vehicles . That could get interresting on narrow downtown streets.

    Anybdoy else`s attention get drawn to the link about fake bike lanes appearing in Dallas? I got a good laugh out of it.

    ^^ Nice work there on the DIY bike lanes.

    The police won't have to actualy masure to give a ticket, but that could give the morist a way to try to fight it. But don't contractors or golfers or something use a laser point and measure device?

    ^^ I would think a modified backup warning device would do this. My Mercury has 5 sensors on the rear bumper tied to electronics to give a a beep that increases in rapidity until it is on full time at some too close distance (about a foot). That change is proportional to the approach to an object. Even works on a yew hedge. Or a bike on a trunk rack, unfortunately.
