Vehicles passing cyclists: Should Victoria have distance laws?

Vehicles passing cyclists: Should Victoria have distance laws?

Michael Lombard was the independent adjudicator of a public policy debate at the Bicycle Network last week on the topic ‘Should Victoria introduce minimum passing distance laws?’

The debate was strongly contested and the speakers well prepared and presented.  Taking into account the rules and requirements of good debating, the affirmative side was successful.

Michael was grateful for the information that was supplied and debated by both teams and helped him personally come to the view that a 1 metre passing distance for vehicles travelling under 60kmh should be introduced into Victoria.
