3-Foot Passing Petition [OBF]

Dear Fellow Ohio Cyclists,
Would you like Ohio motorists to leave us at least three feet of clearance when passing? 
If so, please sign our Ohio Bicycle Federation petition at  
We propose to amend the Ohio Revised Code to include the provision that when overtaking a bicycle, the safe passing distance shall be not less than three feet.
The cities of Cleveland, Cincinnati and Toledo have already adopted three-foot passing ordinances.
Our second proposal would expand, simplify, and clarify the Ohio Revised Code definition of the bicycle to include human powered vehicles of two or more wheels.
We also propose that the definition of a malfunctioning traffic signal include those which fail to detect a bicycle, so that a cyclist may cautiously and lawfully treat the signal as a stop sign.
Please sign our petition by clicking here.
Chuck Smith
Chair, Ohio Bicycle Federation
