A METRE MATTERS IS NOW LAW IN TASMANIA

The Amy Gillett Foundation is delighted that a metre matters legislation is now formally passed into law in Tasmania, and congratulates the Tasmanian Government on this important cycling safety initiative.

The Amy Gillett Foundation has worked with our friends at Cycling Tasmania to achieve this milestone.

In November 2016, the Tasmanian Government announced the decision to adopt a metre matters legislation, joining Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia, Australian Capital Territory and Western Australia.

A metre matters legislation reduces the risk of crashes when drivers pass cyclists and improves safety for cyclists, and all road users, across Australia.

The Amy Gillett Foundation also welcomes the revamped education campaign that accompanies this important law change. Education, together with legislation and enforcement are vital components of achieving behaviour change towards a safer cycling environment.
