We are determined to make a difference for cyclists in NSW with the push for legislation which requires motorists to allow a metre in distance when overtaking.
NSW is the most dangerous state to be a cyclist, with an average of 11 deaths per year for the past decade, constituting 30% of the country’s total fatalities.
I initiated the national action by giving notice of a Bill to require at least 1 metre overtaking distance when passing cyclists.
Current protections are failing to prevent injuries and deaths on our roads and we must act urgently to save lives.
