The Amy Gillett Foundation is calling for action to amend the Australian Road Rules to legislate that drivers allow a minimum of 1 metre when overtaking bike riders on the road.

Obviously I support this – But I really won’t feel ANY safer on the roads with this in place. Why do people think the drivers who wouldn’t give at least a metre berth around cyclists already will change their habits unless there is a policeman around?
You’re probably right mate, sadly. But you have to start somewhere. Like most of these issues, it’s possibly a generational thing. Maybe in 30 years Australia will be more like Europe, we can only hope.
I sure hope so. Seeing thousands of bikes at a train station in germany had my head in a spin. One day, hopefully.
