Bike Maryland is working to strengthen the 3 foot law
Category: Social
Forum: Advocacy

Bike Maryland got you 3 feet and we are working to strengthen the existing 3 foot law!

In one of the first U.S. studies of its kind, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future at the Bloomberg School of Public Health have found that bike lanes in Baltimore improve cyclist safety, in a paper published in the Journal Accident Analysis and Prevention on March 27, 2012.  Read the full paper here: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/ar … 7512000917  Bike Maryland thanks Dr. David Love for initiating and completing this important study.

The study looked at drivers’ behavior around cyclists on roads with and without bike lanes, and the good news is that drivers pass significantly wider when cyclists are in bike lanes. The bad news is that on roads without bike lanes, drivers had trouble sharing the road with cyclists, which often violated a state law aimed at making cycling safer.  In 2010, with the support of Bike Maryland, Maryland passed what is known as the “3-foot law,” which requires that drivers must pass cyclists by three feet or more. The study authors found that one in six motor vehicle passes in Baltimore, or about 17 percent, violated the 3-foot law.

Researcher David Love, PhD, says that, “As cyclists, we knew the 3-foot law was not being followed, and we wanted to quantify the problem. Now, for the first time, we have baseline data to inform future transportation and planning efforts.”
Violations to the 3-foot law were virtually non-existent on streets with bike lanes.  Love notes, “we need to find ways to separate car traffic from bike traffic, and bike lanes are one way to do that.”

The study was conducted by a team of six Johns Hopkins University faculty, staff and students who routinely commute to work or school by bicycle. The authors attached video cameras to their bicycles, recording commutes in the Fall of 2011. By translating video footage into data, the study authors documented experiences that others in Baltimore have reported only anecdotally.
Researcher Jared Margulies says, “many cyclists feel safer in bike lanes, and our data indicates that drivers do give cyclists more room when bike lanes are present.”

The study was sponsored in part by Bike Maryland as we support research to assess motorist compliance with the law.

Legislative Task Force Meeting next Monday - December 19th!

Forum: Advocacy

December 19th - Bike Maryland Legislative Task Force Meeting
Please join Bike Maryland in a discussion of our state legislative agenda. At the upcoming legislative task force meeting we will discuss pro-bike priorities and set a strategy for action!

Monday, December 19, 2011
6:30 to 8:00 pm
Maryland Department of Transportation Headquarters/Harry Hughes Transportation Building
Richard Trainor Conference Room - 1st Floor
7201 Corporate Center Drive
Hanover, MD 21076


Please RSVP - this is my email linkclick here to RSVP even if you will be calling in to the conference call - conference call number is: 410-865-1298
The Maryland General Assembly meets in Annapolis each year for 90 days to act on more than 2300 bills including the State's annual budget. The 430th Session begins January 11, 2012. The General Assembly has 47 Senators and 141 Delegates elected from 47 districts.

While the Maryland General Assembly is in session we have a tremendous opportunity to promote state level pro-bike legislation. Bike Maryland seeks active advocates to assist with the promotion of pro-bike legislation during this short and fast paced legislative session. Active advocates can assist by contacting legislators, obtaining support from business, government and community leaders, performing research and increasing grass roots support!
Priorities:
•    Dedicated funding for bicycling - requiring a dedicated percentage of funds from a potential Gas Tax increase be used to enhance and increase the number of bicycling lanes and paths (especially to connect existing sections of paths), improve signage relating to bicyclists’ use of the roads and three feet to pass, and to implement plans for cycling infrastructure already included in the State’s Master Plan.
•    Strengthen Passing Legislation by requiring motorists to pass cyclists safely, including a combination of:
a. Slowing Down: perhaps to within 15 mph of the speed of the cyclist
b. Moving Left: to allow three feet to pass
c. Crossing a Solid Line: when it is safe to do so (applies to any slow-moving vehicle)
d. Waiting: until it is safe to pass and allow three feet of clearance
•    Distracted driving legislation to make a driver’s use of a hand-held mobile phone a primary offense.
•    Other items of interest (research assistance is needed here): determining a fair transportation enhancement match, allowance of bicycles on MARC trains, development of ICC bicycle infrastructure, strengthen enforcement of the Complete Streets statute in road design, 24 hour trail access for bicyclists for commuting purposes and more.

Witness for bike crash
Forum: Road Problems

9-27-11
A bike / car crash that did not result in serious injury to the biker, but seemed to total the bike, occurred today at the intersection of Tufton and Belmont, right by Sagamore Farms. There was a person who witnessed the accident but at the time did not think to offer her contact information to the biker to make sure he had back-up for any issues that may arise in dealing with the driver. The witness is willing to help out. If anyone knows of this bicyclist, please let them know to contact Bike Maryland (contact carol at bikemd dot org) to obtain the witness’s contact information.
