The bike buffer

Should drivers be required to give bicyclists three feet of room?

It’s a controversy in California where the State Assembly has approved a measure requiring the three-feet of buffer. Drivers would be allowed to cross double solid yellow lines to provide bicyclists enough room, KPBS reports.

A similar measure was vetoed by the governor last year under the theory that it gives bicyclists a false sense of security.

But some supporters say having the law would give motorists more awareness of cyclists.

What say you?
