Proposed Law: keep your distance from bikers

good news for bike riders!

In a law proposal that is supported by MKs from across the political spectrum, automobile drivers would legally have to be more careful when passing a bicycle in the road.

According to this law proposal, on an intercity road, a driver would have to stay at least 1.5 meters away from a bicycle when passing. On local roads the distance drops to 1 meter away.

The authors of the proposal explain that there has been a sharp upswing of  cyclists getting injured from cars.

bike riders should love this news. I regularly hear from cyclist friends how dangerous road biking is and how frequently they nearly get hit...
