Call Virginia Delegate Rust in Support of House Bill 1048!
We need your support today to help pass bicycle-friendly legislation in the Virginia House of Delegates. House Bill 1048 would change the minimum distance for passing a bicyclist to three feet, from the current two feet. Fifteen other states now have three feet to pass laws. HB 1048 also prohibits a motorist from following a bicyclist too closely, to prevent harassment by tailgating.
This bill will be heard in House Transportation Subcommittee 2 on Wednesday morning so time is of the essence. Please call Delegate Tom Rust (R-Herndon) to express your support for the bill. His office number is 804-698-1086.
For more information on this, and other bicycle-related legislation proposed in the Virginia legislature, please visit our friends at the Virginia Bicycling Federation at www.vabike.org.
