Title Michigan Secretary of State tips for sharing the road safely

Tips for sharing the road safely from the Michigan Secretary of State, referenced by the city of Ann Arbor in promoting its new safe-passing ordinance in January 2017. From the pamphlet, "Pass a motorcyclist, moped rider or bicyclist as you would another vehicle, but not so fast or so close that your tires throw dirt or stones into the rider’s face or that a draft from your vehicle blows the motorcycle, moped or bicycle about. Never attempt to squeeze by the rider. A good rule when passing a bicyclist is to allow at least three feet of space between your side mirror and the rider. Five feet of space is recommended for higher speed roads or if a group of riders is present. Large vehicles should allow even more space when passing."
