Legislation to Eliminate the 3 Foot Narrow Road Exception

Many don’t realize that the current 3 foot passing law has an exception for narrow roads.    This means that on nearly all single lane roads the law does not apply.     House Bill 214 sponsored by Delegate Lafferty and co-sponsored by Anne Arundel Del. Mark Chang and others would eliminate the exception.   We also appreciate the work of Del. Pam Beidle, chair of the Transportation Subcommittee, who participated in several working sessions to develop the bill.  BikeAAA’s Jon Korin along with other advocates from around the state testified in support of the bill.    The effort was led by Bike Maryland.    To learn more click here and  here for BikeAAA Written Testimony.
