TRENTON - A new bill aims to create a regulated space between drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians.

The state Assembly passed a bill yesterday that would require drivers to give at least 4 feet of space on the road.

Drivers who violate the bill would face fines of between $100 and $500.

Some Assembly members argued that four feet of space is too much on some of the more narrow roads.

The bill (A1577/1600) passed 50-21 with 6 abstentions.
