A reminder to give cyclists a safe 1.5metres distance when overtaking them on roads where the limit is above 60kph. A driver was issued an infringement notice in Burnie today for failing to maintain the safe distance, and will now have to pay a penalty of $159. The incident on Three Mile Line, where the speed limit is 100kph, was captured on the cyclist’s on-board camera.
The new laws came into effect last month.
