Is it common for motor vehicle laws to have measurable thresholds?

So there's an initiative in New York State to consider a safe passing law for cyclists. The bill would require drivers to give cyclists a three-foot buffer when passing. Opponents want to change "three feet" to "safe distance". Are there other motoring laws that cite a specific measurable distance, rather than a subjective term like "safe distance"?
