Three Feet for Safety Act

Effective Sept. 16, 2014, AB 1371, also known as the “Three Feet for Safety Act,” took effect in California. The new law requires drivers of motor vehicles to maintain a distance of no less than 3 feet while passing a bicyclist. If a motorist cannot pass safely, the motorist must slow to a reasonable and prudent speed and pass only if there’s no danger to the bicyclist. The Corona Police Department will be conducting education and enforcement of these new California Vehicle Code sections within the City of Corona. Enforcement actions could include a warning or issuance of a citation for violations of the “Three Foot for Safety Act.”
