After Governor Gerry Brown made his veto of the 3-Foot-Passing Bill the following people have been injured or killed from hit from behind accidents: 

Omar Gomez of Pomona, 27, Oct. 8,2011, dead (57th So. Cal death this year)
Brian William Davenport of McKinleyville, 52, Nov. 25, 2011, dead
Bob Orneles, Former Mayor City of Arcata, 53, Nov. 29, 2011, punctured lung, 5 broken ribs.
Carol Schreder, Topanga,?, Dec 3, 2011, dead (65th So. Cal death this year)

(The3-Foot-Passing Bill would have taken full effect in January 2012)
Whether it would have made a difference in these cases we may never know. But thanks to Governor Brown, it won’t make a difference for anyone else killed or injured, either.
