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.
