Starting Tuesday, a new California law requires drivers to stay three feet from bicyclists when passing them.

The law was authored by Assemblyman Steven Bradford, who says an existing law requiring drivers to pass a cyclist at a safe distance was too vague.

“Many states have established three feet as a standard distance, and Pennsylvania’s law mandates a four-feet buffer to pass,” according to Bradford.

The rule won’t lead to heightened law enforcement, said Bradford, who told news outlets that education was the primary focus of his legislation.
