    Ohio 3 foot law and intersection bill

    House Bill 145 cleared committee and could be voted on in the full house next week. This bill requires a minimum of three feet clearance when passing a bicyclist and allows any vehicle that does not trigger the sensors in intersections to proceed with caution, yielding to other vehicles.

    At least one committee member that was originally against it (the law being too protective of cyclists, why are they on the road) voted in favor to get it to the full house.

    Any Ohioans, feel free to let your state representative know your opinion.

    Yes, though since it is a new session, it has to start over in committee as HB 154. Also keep a watch for HB110. That passed the House last session but didn't come up for a vote in the Senate. That increases the penalty for hit and run.
