Louisiana 3 Feet


Louisiana State Representation Michael Jackson has introduced a law into the state legislator to require drivers to give cyclists 3 feet of space and to make harassing cyclists a crime.

Recently New Orleanian Dr. Colin Goodier was killed by a driver on River Road in Baton Rouge. The Baton Rouge Tiger Cycling Foundation started campaigning for 3 feet laws in response to his death and others in the Baton Rouge area.

The Baton Rouge Bike Club and Crescent City Cyclists are asking people to send a thank you e-mail to Rep. Jackson to introducing this bill. To add to that, NolaCycle would like to ask you e-mail or call your local representative and tell him or her that you support this measure and would like to see additional legislation to promote cycling.
