Last month, The Ohio Bicycle Federation provided an update on the status of Senate Bill 174, which includes a three foot passing law:
Update on Senate Bill 174
The OBF testified before the Ohio Senate Highways and Transportation Committee on May 19 to support our Senate Bill 174, which would require Ohio motorists to pass bicyclists with at least three feet to spare. Senator Tom Patton of Strongville must now schedule a committee vote on our bill. Our sponsor, Senator Fedor, says that we have the votes to pass it out of committee to the full Senate. Senator Patton may be reached at:
Senator Tom Patton
1 Capitol Square, 1st Floor
Columbus, OH 43215
Phone: (614) 466-8056
If you have the time to read this blog, you probably have the time to send Senator Patton an e-mail or call his office.
