Share the Road – It's the Law!
Many motorists are not aware that they are required by law to share the road with non-motorized traffic on all roads with the exception of limited-access highways (e.g. I-95). For more information about the state law requiring drivers to allow 3 feet when passing cyclists or pedestrians, please visit the Connecticut Department of Transportation website.
