Georgia passed an important law in 2011 mandating that drivers attempting to overtake a cyclist must leave at least three (3) feet in between the vehicle and the cyclist.  Many people do not follow this important law and seem to forget that in a car versus cyclist collision, the car is going to win. What makes these collisions...
