Safe Passing Law

Posted Aug 28 2009 8:18pm
The fitness minded head honcho of TX veto'd the last "safe passing law" that gives cyclists, motocyclists, I assume pedestrians, maybe even horseback riders at least 3-feet between them and a passing car.

Taken from a local forum:

First and most importantly, if you have not signed the safe passing petition, please go to the link and do so now. Please also forward to, say, five people. http://www.biketexas.org/component/option,com_philaform/form_id,32/Itemid,1/

I do 45% or so of my riding inside for a few reasons...
- I don't have to stop unless I want to;
- The computrainer really is a good workout tool;
- I hate dealing with cars;
- It is like putting yourself into a life-sized clothes dryer and riding right now in Texas.

Maybe, that's a big maybe, this bill would make #3 above at least a little more pleasant. Wishful thinking, probably.
