New Calif. Law Adds 3-Foot Protection For Cyclists But Will It Make San Diego Roads Safe Enough?

The 3ft rule could be a problem in carlsbad. The city widened the bike lanes to give bikers more room for safety and the car lanes are now skinnier. Worse, the bikers constantly overflow outside their lanes near the beach as it is. Now I see them 3 abreast regularly at times more. They do this as though it is their right to overflow into the car lanes. With the skinnier lanes there is less room for error. Much less 3ft. But I guess all traffic could slow to bike speed to accommodate them. Someone should set up a camera so we can see how common this is on weekends particularly. I am for biking and its positives but there are plenty of dumb bikers making dumb decisions. They drive cars too and make the same dumb decisions drivers do.
