Give us some room here

Ann Arbor drivers will soon be subject to the city’s new safe passing ordinance, which goes into effect this month. Motorists will be required to allow a distance of at least 5 feet between their vehicle and pedestrians, wheelchair users and cyclists on the roads.

Although violations of the new local ordinance will not go on your driving record nor will any points be assessed, violators will be charged with a civil infraction and subject to a $100 fine.
