Sharing the road: Elkhart one step closer to new rules

Elkhart, Ind. Elkhart is one step closer to new rules for drivers as they share the roads with bicyclists.

They've been discussing a proposal to require drivers give three feet of passing space.

Thursday night, the city's health and public safety committee give it a favorable recommendation.

According to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth, South Bend, Indianapolis and Fort Wayne have similar measures in place.

Advocates say the new rules would do more than just keep things safe. They hope it will send the message that Elkhart is bike friendly.
