New rules for cyclists and drivers in NSW
The NSW Government will introduce new rules for cyclists and drivers from 1 March 2016. Drivers must give bicycle riders at least a metre of space when passing, and cyclists are also encouraged to give pedestrians at least a metre of space on shared paths where possible for safety. Some of the other changes include increased penalties for cyclists who behave dangerously and break the law while riding. Cyclists over the age of 18 must also now carry a photo ID (either driver's licence or NSW Photo Card). Find out more about the new rules from the Centre for Road Safety and be prepared for 1 March.
