The three-foot rule that recently passed as a city ordinance in Grants Pass has generated some good discussion. A few minutes ago I got an email from Ed Abrahamson. Ed is the Principal Planner for the Multnomah County Land Use and Transportation Program.
He shared this photo he took last summer while on vacation in France. Turns out Ed has been a long-time proponent of a safe passing law and wants to capitalize on the recent momentum.
According to his email:
“I was hoping to get this adopted here and seeing the Grants Pass legislation gives me hope.”
Ed will take this photo and comments from this site to the June 14th meeting of the Multnomah County Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
This committee advises the Board of County Commissioners and Transportation Division on matters involving bicycle and pedestrian transportation within the County’s road jurisdiction.
Please weigh in on your feelings about this issue and I’ll keep you posted on any developments.
