PROGRESS WITH NSW POLICE ENFORCEMENT OF A METRE MATTERS
Today the Amy Gillett Foundation met with with senior representatives of NSW Police and the NSW Centre for Road Safety, together with Bicycle NSW to discuss a range of issues around cycling safety including enforcement and education of a metre matters laws.
Delighted to agree a way forward which includes:
- NSW Police to collaborate with the Amy Gillett Foundation and Bicycle NSW on internal communications and education of front line police on a metre matters (minimum passing distance laws)
- NSW Police, the Amy Gillett Foundation and Bicycle NSW working together on bike rider communications on cycling safety issues including use of video evidence in reporting MPD incidents
- Working with the Centre for Road Safety and NSW Police on a refreshed driver education campaign on a metre matters laws (MPD).
We look forward to ongoing discussions and activities to help improve cycling safety in NSW.
