If you live in Queensland, nearly all press in the last week has been 1.5.
I've posted previously my view that the AGF's one metre rule is inadequate, and I refuse to support it. Educate drivers that one metre is the minimum and that is what they'll give, regardless of the speed and conditions. This may be ok in low speed urban areas, but on the highway I don't want b-doubles passing me at 90kph only one metre away.
A quick Google shows that calls for a legislated minimum overtaking clearance around the world all nominate 1.5 metres. Quite a few EU countries and US states have already adopted this rule.
This minimum clearance rule would be in addition to existing rules requiring safe overtaking, not to replace it.
It seems that the cycling bodies are out of touch with the views of a great many cyclists.

Is there something in particular that created this or is it just a peculiarity of the locality.
The high population growth rate has outpaced infrastructure / the good old days.
