3 Feet – It's The Law

monmouth signs2
Throughout 2014, communities across Maine have been installing local and state road signs to educate motorists about the law requiring cars to give a minimum of 3-feet of space when passing bicycles and pedestrians. Most recently, four signs were installed in Monmouth – two on local roads and two on Route 132. The signs pictured are approved by the MaineDOT. In Monmouth, the project was recommended by the Monmouth Conservation Commission with funding provided by Monmouth Dept. of Public Works. For more information about 3-Foot law signs, see the resources from this 2014 Community Spokes Webinar, Mutual Aid Call: ‘3-Feet-Please’ Signage Campaign in Brunswick
