Reaction to Mercury-News cycling bill story

The reactions are hot and heavy to Monday's San Jose Mercury-News article about the California bill that would require motorists give cyclists at least 3 feet of clearance while passing.

A poll and forum on the Mercury-News' Web site has drawn more than 900 votes and more than 90 responses. As of Thursday afternoon, 55 percent of the poll respondents favor the bill.

The responses are pretty typical on both sides of the issues, so take a look at them for yourself. My take is that both sides would be better off if they take the time to learn the rules or the road for motorists and cyclists and, more importantly, follow them.
