Ohio House Bill 145 Safe Passing

by Ruth Kaser for Cycling Articles

Legislative news from the Ohio Bicycle Federation (OBF)

Your OBF supports Ohio House Bill 145. Passage of House Bill 145 would require motor vehicles to leave at least three feet of clearance when passing bicyclists in Ohio. It would also permit any Ohio vehicle to proceed after stopping and yielding right-of-way at an intersection, even when not detected by the mechanism which advances the traffic light. With this change, we cyclists will no longer need to wait indefinitely at intersections for autos to come to actuate traffic lights or leave the roadway to press pedestrian buttons.

..The Ohio Bicycle Federation urges voters to contact their Representative regarding this legislation to encourage its passage.
