If you’ve driven or cycled on the road, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve broken the law. It is not surprising to Damien Newton, founder and editor of Streetsblog LA, who is also a bicyclist. He owns three of them, and also has a car. Newton is happy with the new state law mandating drivers to keep a distance of three feet from cyclists. Newton moved to Los Angeles in 2008 from the east coast and became involved in advocating for cyclist causes by hounding city council members. Since moving here, Newton has seen the improvement in the city’s bike-friendliness with an increase in bike lanes, among other things.
