For all of those riding in California and haven't heard of AB1371 known as the 3' law the law goes into affect today! This is a huge win as for cyclist as police can now ticket vehicles passing unsafely. The law goes into effect as a result of friends and family of Greg Colvin who was struck from behind and killed on PCH in Orange County. Although others have been killed this one got the most attention due to location.
Here is a quick pick of the front page article found in the OC register.
