Ohio Governor Kasich signed Ohio Bicycle Federation’s House Bill 154 into law on December 19. It will take effect on 19 March 2017, 90 days from that date. HB 154 was passed by the Ohio Senate on December 8.
HB 154 will require Ohio motorists to leave at least three feet of clearance when passing Ohio bicyclists and will permit all Ohio vehicles to proceed through an intersection after stopping and yielding right-of-way, even when not detected by the device meant to move the signal from red to green.
Ohio will become the 28th state to have a three-foot passing requirement.
