A statewide law requires cars and trucks to give four feet of clearance when passing a bicyclist. Known as the 4-Foot Safe Passing Law, it went into effect this past April. But who really knows about it? WPSU’s Patty Satalia hits the road to find out.

I’m curious if the law applies to, or has a companion law regarding runners.
As a motorist I’ve always tried to give extra room to cyclist and runners as common courtesy.
