Chattanooga, Tennessee Tests Technology That Could Make Roads Safer for Cyclists (Police use Radar and Cameras–not really new))

Last month, Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley signed a bill into law requiring drivers to pass bicyclists at a distance of at least three feet. That makes Alabama the 35th state with a “safe passing” law that specifically mentions bicyclists. As police in Alabama look to implement the new law, they may want to learn from a pilot project underway in Chattanooga, Tenn., where cops use radar and cameras to hold drivers accountable for violations.
