New safe cycling laws confirmed

IPSWICH cyclists have welcomed the State Government's decision yesterday to retain the minimum cyclist passing distance laws.

Minister for Main Roads and Road Safety Mark Bailey said the laws would now be permanent following the completion of a two-year state-wide trial.

Under the laws, motorists must give bike riders a minimum one metre berth while passing them in a 60km/h or less speed zone, and a 1.5 metre berth where the speed limit is over 60km/h.

Bicycle Queensland fought for the retention of the passing laws on behalf of local cyclists.
