You’ve probably heard about the bill that puts 3 feet between you and a passing automobile. We call it the Colorado Bicycle Safety Bill. In the state house, it’s called Senate Bill 148. But, it’s not going to pass without your help.
The bill narrowly passed the House Transportation Committee late Tuesday night after drawn-out testimony from opponents.
How You Can Help:
Call or email the State Representative from your district and ask them to support Senate Bill 148 for bicycle safety. Briefly tell them why bicycle safety is important to you and ask them to include 3 feet to pass and safe lane positioning.
