Change Lanes for Bikes. It’s the Law!
The Las Vegas Cyclist Memorial has announced the launch of Change Lanes for Bikes. It’s the Law! public awareness campaign.
This public awareness campaign aims to educate motorists and cyclists about Nevada’s 3-feet/Move Over passing law (NRS 484B.270).
According to the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration, in 2018, there were 857 cyclists killed by motorists. According to research completed by The Bike Adviser, in 2019 there were 846 cyclists killed. In Nevada, 35.6% of overall traffic fatalities are pedestrian and bicyclists.
We at Save Red Rock are proud to partner with Breakaway Cycling, Ghost Bikes Las Vegas, and Southern Nevada Bicycle Coalition for this public awareness campaign.
