Passing Law

ARKANSAS Law requires drivers to give cyclists space
LITTLE ROCK -- A new state law requires motorists to allow at least three feet between their vehicles and bicycle riders when passing them.
Violating the law can result in a $100 fine, and if the violation causes an accident that results in death or serious injury, the motorist can be fined up to $1,000.

Punishment seems a little light if it causes a crash that kills or seriously injures the rider, but at least it's a good attempt at telling drivers to respect bicycles on the road.
