New safe-passing bicycle law takes effect July 14th
On July 14th, a new Kentucky law went into affect that requires motorists to scotch over in the opposing lane of traffic when passing bicyclists.
If oncoming traffic keeps drivers from using the other lane, they must keep a minimum safe-passing distance of 3 feet.
The 3-foot requirement is measured from the outermost part of the vehicle, such as the passenger-side rearview mirror, to the bicyclist's left handlebar. If the roadway is too narrow to provide that space, the passing motorist must use "reasonable caution" when passing.
