Good news on the legislative front

On Tuesday, the Illinois House passed SB80, which will require motorists to leave a minimum of 3 feet while passing a cyclist or other individuals. The bill now goes to Gov. Rod Blagojevich for his signature. The House approved the bill by a 107-8 vote.

In addition to the 3-foot clearance requirement, the bill also allows cyclists to "take the lane" where right turns are authorized and allows the option of a right arm hand signal when turning right.

For more information about the bill, visit the League of Illinois Bicyclists' Web site.
