We are thrilled to announce that Governor Snyder has signed our safe passing and driver's education improvement bills into law. These new laws, now PA 277, 279, and 280 of 2018, collectively codify 3 feet as the safe passing standard and will require driver's ed curriculums to include at least 1 hours devoted to bicyclists, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and other vulnerable roadway users.
The safe passing law has immediate effect, meaning it is now the law of the land as of today! The driver's ed law does not go into effect until early spring. More information, including FAQs, will be posted on our website soon.
Thank you to everyone who supported these bills along the way. special thank you to Representatives Hughes, Alexander, and Bizon, as well as Senators O'Brien and Knezek, for their leadership and support of this legislation.
