3 feet

Effective September 16, 2014, a new law known as the “Three Feet for Safety Act” takes effect that, in addition to “passing safely,” specifically requires that motorists provide three feet of clearance when passing a bicyclist on the roadway. 

Additional information is available from the State of California Department of Motor Vehicles

http://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/vctop/d11/vc21760.htm or from the  National Conference of State Legislators http://www.ncsl.org/research/transportation/safely-passing-bicyclists.aspx

OCTA, in cooperation with the Automobile Club of Southern California (AAA), has made educational materials available for OCTAP permitted companies, drivers, to Safety and Steering Committee member agencies, to OCTA contractors, and to the public.  OCTAP has a limited supply of posters, handouts, and window clings available to help educate motorists and the public of the new law.  If you would like promotional materials to help educate your audience, please contact OCTAP.  Additional materials (when OCTAP runs out or for large supplies) are also available at  http://www.octa.net/Share-the-Ride/Bike/3-Feet-For-Safety-Act/.
