New Mexico moving closer to a 5 Foot Safe Passing Law

Having passed through both the New Mexico Senate and House, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez now has twenty days to sign SB 124 in order to make this bill into law. This would be the first statewide 5 foot Safe Passing law in the nation.

SB 124 clarifies to motorists what a safe passing distance is, provides a safe operating space for cyclists across the state and creates another tool for law enforcement when responding to aggressive drivers and crashes; as well as an opportunity to educate motorists and cyclists on how to share the road safely.

Cyclists in New Mexico should  contact Governor Martinez through our Advocacy Center and urge her to sign SB 124 into law.
