I want Safe Cycling – 3 FEET LAW in the Philippines PLEASE!

3 Feet PleaseI wish that our law makers in our country will pass a law like this for the safety of bicyclists or cyclists. I know that safety first is everyone’s concern especially when we are on the road.

Passing 3 feet meters law when a car passing a bike on the road will be much appreciated since just like motorized vehicles we too have a share in paying taxes and it happened that we like putting fun between our legs.

3 Feet Please, It's the LawThere are many reasons why you own a bike and for me I built one because I love to pedal and travel from one place to another without having to pay for my gas, some uses it to commute going to work which I do also and some do it for healthy living and not to mention some ride their bikes  for a living, selling street foods and all that.

I hope that our senators and lawmakers take a look at this as it will not only help us live a healthy living we can also help our Mother Nature by lessening the carbon footprint that we do everyday. Imagine if all of us commute to work using a bike, less cars and more bikes would be fun. If they will push for a campaign such as this “3 <——> Feet Please, It’s the LAW” I will definitely support it and be the one to spread it to the country through this blog.

For now, this is all I can do, post a blog about this and share some inspiring stories which I am sharing a video shot in United States of America of officers or police sharing their share of helping cyclists safety as their priority. It is very inspiring and I really really hope they will also adopt this in the Philippines.
