Sample Text


Please support Sen. Ryan McDougle's Three Foot passing law, SB 928.   

This bill will increase the required passing distance between cars and bicycles from 2 feet of space to 3 feet of space. This small increase can make the difference between life and death for people who have no means of transportation other than a bicycle and for those who try to enjoy cycling for exercise and recreation.


In 2009, over 610 people on bicycles in Virginia were either seriously injured or killed in crashes with cars. SB 928 offers an immediate means for saving lives.
