Safety Focus of the Week: New VT Motor Vehicle Laws
Vermont Transportation Act 158 goes into affect tomorrow with a few changes relative to motor vehicle rules, including:
- 4-ft minimum clearance for “vulnernable users”
- Yielding to “vulnerable users” when entering traffic
- $25 to $100 fine for cyclist impeding traffic when riding two abreast
In case you don’t me, bicycling is one of my passions. I spend lots of time on the road, primarily as a solo cyclist during my work commute, lunch rides, evening exercise, and in my pursuit of bagging the 251 towns in Vermont (http://www.vt251.com/user/kenp).
To all travelling public: Have a safe and fun upcoming July 4th weekend.
