NJ 3 Feet Safe Passing
I am a NJ voter and support the "3 Foot Safe Passing" bill sponsored by Senators Brian Stack & Kevin O'Toole, Assemblywoman Grace Spencer, Assemblywoman Linda Stender and Assemblyman Ruben J. Ramos, Jr. This bill is fully supported by the NJ Bike & Walk Coalition. The Bill numbers are S-1461 and A-1020.
1. Defines a safe passing distance of at least 3', when available, for vehicles when overtaking a bicycle or passing a pedestrian or other vulnerable user, or groups of such users.
2. Imposes a fine of $100 for the first offense and $300 thereafter for violating the 3 foot minimum distance requirement when overtaking a bicycle or passing a pedestrian or other vulnerable user, or groups of such users.
3. We urge that this bill be passed and enacted into law.
This Petition will be sent to Senator Nicholas Sacco, head of the Transportation Committee, as well as the Senate and Assembly sponsors. You can find your legislator here if you are interested: http://www.njleg.state.nj.us/members/legsearch.asp
The names/signatures on this petition will never be sold or shared with any third parties other than the NJ legislation. We will keep you up-to-date on how we are progressing via email.
Thank you so much for your support and PLEASE pass on to every cyclist, walker, runner, jogger and other vulnerable users so we can make a statement to our legislature and a difference in our state!
