DENVER, CO (BRAIN)—A new bicycle safety law went into effect yesterday, where drivers have to gives cyclists at least 3 feet of space when passing or risk a $110 ticket, according to the TV news station KMGH Denver.

"Even wind from a passing vehicle can cause bicyclists to change their course a bit," said Dan Grunig, executive director of Bicycle Colorado, to the news station. "So providing that safe distance helps insure that if there's a rock or a pothole in the bikers' way, that they're not in the way of a car too."
