New Traffic Laws Introduced In California

In the last few months, California lawmakers have been hard at work creating new traffic laws that will hopefully make roads and highways a little safer.

A new law will soon be going into affect primarily targeting the safety of commuting cyclist.  The Three Feet for Safety Act basically enforces the distance between a motorist and cyclist to prevent any accidents or injuries to both parties.  Motorists must maintain a minimum of three feet from a cyclist or else face a fine and if caught repeating the offense could face jail time.

The objective of the new law is to reduce accidents between bicyclists and motor vehicles.
