Explaination

To pass a bicycle traveling in your direction, slow down and check for oncoming traffic. Under Tennessee's Jeff Roth and Brian Brown Bicycle Protection Act, when you pass the bicycle, you must leave at least three feet of clearance between your vehicle and the bicycle. (This law was named for Jeff Roth, a cyclist who was struck and killed by a pickup truck in 2006, and Brian Brown, a cyclist who was struck and killed by a passing truck in 2000.) [TCA § 55-8-175]
