Club Pushes for Motorists to Follow the Law
by Gary Shaff on Aug, 25 2016
Siskiyou Velo has initiated a public education campaign focused on improving motorists’ awareness and adherence to the State’s bike passing law. Velo’s members have found that most Southern Oregon motor vehicle drivers pass people riding bicycles in a safe and respectful manner. But too often, drivers pass too close and in violation of the law.
Adopted into law in 2007, ORS 811.065 establishes a safe haven for people riding bikes so that if they were to fall into the lane of traffic the following motorist would not run over the fallen cyclist (see illustration below).
