Drivers: New law requires cars to stay at least three feet away from cyclists

e-Connections Post

A new law that took effect on Tuesday requires drivers to keep a three-foot buffer between their cars and cyclists. Violating the law could result in $238 in fines and court fees. Breaking the law and injuring a cyclist raises those fines to $982.

Traffic around SCUSD schools at morning drop-off times and afternoon pick-ups continue to be quite heavy, making it difficult for pedestrians and students on bicycles to navigate.

Please be careful around our schools and abide by all rules of the road. Visit our Pedestrian and Cyclist Safety webpage for more information.
