An Act to Reduce Traffic Fatalities

Earlier this year, Governer Baker signed An Act to Reduce Traffic Fatalities into law. The bill includes measures to increase safety for pedestrians and cyclists on Massachusetts roadways. It’s provisions include:

  • Defines “Vulnerable Road Users” to include people walking and biking; roadside workers; people using wheelchairs, scooters, skateboards, roller skates, etc.
  • Requires “safe passing distance” to be 4 feet for drivers giving clearance to Vulnerable Road Users
  • Requires state owned and contracted trucks to be equipped with lateral side-guards, mirrors, and backup cameras
  • Clarifies the process for municipalities to lower speed limits on both municipal and state-controlled roads
  • Develops a statewide standardized analysis tool to be used to report crashes and incidents involving Vulnerable Road Users
  • Requires bicyclists to use rear red lights at night, but absence of a light is not cause for an officer to stop a bicyclist
