LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — In 2011, Nevada passed the Vulnerable User Law, which requires at least 3 feet of clearance between a bicycle and a motor vehicle.
As of 2020, 33 states have the same or similar law and some states like Pennsylvania have a 4-feet passing law.
In 8 states, there are general laws that say a motorist must pass at a “safe distance.”
Pennsylvania requires 4 feet when passing.
There have been at least 3 fatalities involving bicyclists in the Las Vegas area in recent months despite the law.
