Safety campaign: Give cyclists room

CHICAGO A state law went into effect on January 1 requiring drivers to pass cyclists with at least three- feet to spare. A new campaign called "Please Don't Squeeze," is trying to bring the law back into the spotlight.

Bicycle deaths have decreased in Illinois. However, in recent weeks two bicyclists were killed in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood.

The campaign also reminds cyclists to obey the law and ride safely.
