Woo-hoo! Cars now have to give cyclists 3 feet when passing.

Bicycle lanes safer for motorists, too: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Effective Oct. 1, a new Florida law will go into effect protecting bicyclists. HB 7079, recently signed by Gov. Jeb Bush, will require that "the driver of a vehicle overtaking a bicycle or other non-motorized vehicle must pass the bicycle or other non-motorized vehicle at a safe distance of not less than 3 feet between the vehicle and the bicycle or other non-motorized vehicle."

Now let's make sure it's enforced.
