Bills In Indiana Legislature Would Require Motorists To Avoid Bicycles On Streets
Bills were introduced in the Indiana Legislature that would require motorists to leave a three-foot safety zone when passing bicyclists on public streets. State Rep. Edward Delaney wrote a bill in the Indiana House, and state Sens. Philip Boots and Greg Taylor introduced bills in the Indiana Senate. If approved, the law would impose a $500 fine on any motorist who does not keep the required distance from a bicycle rider. All three bills have had a first reading and been referred to committees.
