Driver prosecuted for violating 3-foot law.

Police in Salt Lake City are searching for a driver who violated a 2005 Utah law that requires drivers to give cyclists a 3-foot buffer when passing. The driver of the truck swerved close enough to the cyclist to allow the passenger to reach out and swat the cyclist. They picked the wrong guy to harass, as he is the president of the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective and victim of a previous bike-car-collision. When found, the driver will face a possible fine of up $750 and 90 days in jail. I hope they throw the book at this dipshit and his mental-giant of a passenger. They'll get all the grab-ass they can handle in the pokey. Read it here.
