Can a New Law Make LA Drivers Bike-Friendly?

Hosted by

California drivers listen up: A new law went into effect yesterday, designed to make bicycle riding safer on busy streets and highways. Drivers must stay at least three feet away when they’re passing cyclists. If there’s not enough space, the driver must slow to a “reasonable and prudent speed,” and wait until things open up.
