Nov 14, 2014 — Just another reminder to contact your representative to ask them to vote for HB145.

Would you also ask others to sign this petition to show their support?

Let's join the other 22 states with a 3' passing law!



Please support HB 145 to make biking safer and more convenient in Ohio!
 
Ohio House Bill 145 was approved May 28 by the Ohio House Transportation Committee, and is now facing a possible vote next month on the floor of the Ohio House.  House Bill 145 is sponsored by State Representative Mike Henne, and supported by the Ohio Bicycle Federation. 
 
House Bill 145 would do two good things for Ohio's cyclists:
  1.  Require that motorists leave a safe passing distance of at least three feet when passing Ohio cyclists.   Passage would make Ohio the 23rd state to have this safer passing requirement.
  2. Permit all Ohio vehicles to proceed after stopping and yielding right-of-way when not detected by the device meant to move the traffic light from red to green.
You may read the entire House Bill 145 at http://www.legislature.state.oh.us/bills.cfm?ID=130_HB_145.
 
Please contact your state legislator and ask them to support House Bill 145.  This bill makes Ohio streets safer and more convenient for all
 
Thanks,
 
League of American Bicyclists and the Ohio Bicycle Federation
