Safe-passing, passed in Oklahoma

---Let's go national! Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry has signed a bill into law making it a finable offense for a driver to pass a cyclist closer than three feet. Oklahoma is believed to be only the third state to have a safe-passing law. It also simplifies what a bicycle is, clarifies where cyclists should ride on the road, removes a requirement that cyclists ride on sidewalks, and establishes fines if a motorist hits a cyclist. Credit for this advancement in cyclists' rights goes to the Oklahoma Bicycle Coalition.
