Increased safety measures for cyclists in the works

threefootrule.PNG

Indiana lawmakers are one step closer to passing a bill that would protect bicyclist's safety across the state. This bill, known as the "Trails Bill," includes an amendment with safe passing language, which would officially mandate motor vehicles to keep three feet's distance from cyclists when passing.

The "Trails Bill" would establish an Indiana task force to complete the following by July 1st of 2019:

  • Conceptualize connecting existing bicycle trails throughout Indiana & estimate cost
  • Present six innovative ways to fund connections to existing trails
  • Created a phased approach implementation timeline for each funding method
  • Amendment- three feet passing distance enforcement

This afternoon, there will be a second reading on the Senate floor. If you'd like to support this bill in an effort to protect Indiana cyclists, contact your senator and ask for their support. To find your legislator's contact information, click here.
