Safe Distance Question

I'm most likely going to go full on crazy-looking-bicycle-guy.  The snow/ice yesterday forced my commute more into normal traffic and I'm uncomfortable with the close passers.  I'm gonna do the pool noodle thing.  What is the safe passing distance when a car is passing a bicycle?  How long should this noodle be?  I was thinking about 3 feet.See More
