The @DulwichHillBC have started a petition, asking @NSWPolice to actively enforce the 1 metre safe passing rule on our roads. You can sign here: https://www.change.org/p/protect-your-family-and-friends-with-safe-passing-distance-ametrematters

We can’t build separated cycleways on every city road, so it is vital that when cyclists and drivers are sharing the lane that they follow the road rules; and that includes drivers leaving at least 1 metre as they pass people on bikes.

In 2017, 1967 cyclists were seriously injured across NSW. Our roads are shared spaces, where bike riders, pedestrians, and -most importantly- drivers need to be aware of their surrounds and work together to ensure everyone can move around our city safely. https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/where-sydney-drivers-get-busted-for-not-giving-cyclists-space-20180902-p50199.html
