Cyclists and vehicles are forced to share the road at times, and some bicyclists in East Tennessee urge drivers to stay patient and more importantly, follow the laws so the cyclists feel safe.

Brad Webb and Steve Bacon have experienced motorists getting too close first hand, which why they are huge advocates for the “Three Feet Law.”

The law in Tennessee requires drivers to remain three feet away when passing bicyclists on roadways. When a car gets too close, it’s referred to as “buzzing” and could put the riders in danger of getting hit.
