Safe drivers and bicycles – check out the link below.  With more students riding to school now, parents are reminded of the new laws in relation to motorists passing bicycle riders.

Motorists must stay wider of the rider by giving a minimum of:

1m when passing a bicycle rider in a 60km/h or less speed zone or

1.5m where the speed limit is over 60km/h.

Passing a bicycle rider means that you (as a driver) and the bicycle rider are travelling in the same direction. This includes when you are travelling side-by-side in separate lanes on a multi-lane road. It does not apply if you are travelling in opposite directions, or when you are on the other side of the road to a bicycle rider.
