It all depends on the width of the road. On the roads I usually cycle on, three feet and the driver would hit the hedge.thomas said:Depending on the situation, three feet isn't that much.
I'd be much for something which encourages driver to get into the other lane to overtake.
Uncle Phil said:Hmmm. 3 feet might be fine at 20 or 30 mph in town.
A 40-tonner passing you at 60 on a single-carriageway windy A road would be a different matter. 3 feet's nowhere near enough.
Yes, I know they're not meant to be doing 60, but they do. And they don't like braking or changing gear to pass.
