Move Over Washington!

Washington state has a new safe passing law. When passing people walking, bicycling, using a personal mobility device, moped, scooter, motorcycle, farm equipment or riding an animal, vehicles must give at least three feet or move entirely into the adjacent lane if there is one. The new law goes into effect January 1, 2020. Drivers who don’t move over can be ticketed and fined.

Change lanes or slow down and give three feet. It’s the law.
