3 Foot Passing Law

“The operator of a vehicle overtaking another vehicle shall pass to the left at a safe distance and shall not again drive to the right until safely clear of the overtaken vehicle. When a motor vehicle overtakes and passes a bicycle, three feet or greater is considered a safe passing distance.”

About Families for Safe Streets

Northeast Ohio Families for Safe Streets (NEO FSS) is a group for people who have lost loved ones or who have been injured in a crash by aggressive, reckless, or careless driving, which is often behavior enabled by dangerous street design. The group is designed to provide a community of support for victims and loved ones. Families for Safe Streets is a chapter of a national organization that originated in New York City.

NEO FSS will work collaboratively to end traffic violence in Greater Cleveland by changing laws, enforcement, street design, public attitudes and traffic culture to make our streets safe and equitable for all road users, while supporting those who are survivors.
