If your state does not have a safe passing margin law, work with your legislators and your fellow cycling advocates to create one and get the governor to sign it.
We have this law in GA as well and have had for about 4-5 years. But if you were to ask a hundred people about his law...viritually no one knows of it's existence. It's probably on your driver's test but who remembers those details without being reminded. I see dozens of signs every week reminding me to "buckle up". Don't remember seeing more than one sign reminding me of the Three Foot Law.
