Starting Tuesday, Ohio drivers will have to give more space to bicyclists when passing.
When passing a bike, drivers must give at least three feet for bicyclists.
The Ohio Bicycle Federation has worked since 2009 for passage of a 3-foot passing clearance bill. According to the Federation, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Toledo already have three-foot passing laws. Now that the bill has passed, Ohio is the 28th state to have a three-foot passing requirement.
