(male announcer) now, here's stanley roberts who found people behaving badly. >> the state of california just passed a new law it's bieng called the three foot law and it's to protect bicylist no not the riders that are using ths sidewalk, it's for people using the roadway along with cars, trucks and buses the three foot law creates an invisible buffer zone around bicyclist to give them an added piece of protection the law goes in to effext in 2014 what this means, cue the bad behavior here: when you see a bicyclist you can't pretend you are in an imaginary race you have to give the rider space because let's be frank even though you are passing up the bicylist you both will end up at the same light unless the bicylist were to run said light and speed up to a suv making an illegal you turn you are on your own then this sign reads change lanes to pass, bicyclist allowed use of full lane which means if there is no dedicated bike lane the bicyclist gets to use the full lane and if a drivers want to pass they must change lanes
