Reminder: Motorists must give bicycles 3 feet minimum while passing.

As of Jan. 1, 2020, Washington drivers must give cyclists and pedestrians three feet of space, or more, if passing them on the road.  Here’s what drivers need to know:

-If there are two or more lanes, drivers must move out of the right lane to pass a cyclist.
-If there is only one lane in each direction, drivers must slow down and give the cyclist at least three feet of space.
-If there is one lane in each direction, but not enough room to pass, the driver must move into oncoming traffic when safe to do so.
