New cycling protection law in Colorado

Colorado's new legislation includes these legal requirements:

• Drivers must always allow three feet between the vehicle and the cyclist and cannot pass a cyclist without the appropriate clearance.

• Drivers can’t drive too close to cyclists or drive “in a threatening manner toward or near a bicyclist.”

Drivers cannot throw objects at or otherwise taunt bicyclists.

Jeff Mapes has written a book claiming that in US cities there’s a pedalling revolution happening.
