Ontario’s NDP to table Canada’s first 3-foot bicycle passing law – May 18
On Tuesday, May 18, NDP Transit critic Cheri DiNovo will introduce a private members bill requiring vehicle drivers to give at least 3-feet of clearance when passing.
So-called “3 foot laws” have been passed in more than ten U.S. states, and go a long way in educating drivers and making cycling safer in both urban and rural settings.
Cyclists and friends are invited to join in the launch of this Bill at Queen’s Park on Tuesday, May 18:
- 9:30 am – Rally for Safe Cycling – bring your bikes and your kids and show your support for a new provincial 3 foot law. Front Lawn of Ontario legislature.
- 10:00 am – Media conference. Queen’s Park Media Studio.
