Drivers will face a $400 fine and four demerit points if they fail to leave a 1m gap when overtaking cyclists, under new State regulations. People took to the Telegraph’s Facebook page to express their opinions.
This is ridiculous. Make cyclists pay road tax and rego. It’s ridiculous that they even ride on the road. It's dangerous for everyone. Lauren May They should not be allowed off the shoulder (if there is one), or if there isn't one, they should not be allowed more than half-a-metre from edge. Paul White People really need to get over this issue. Have patience with other road users. It’s not that difficult. Boyd Elki Midgley The fact is I have to cross into oncoming traffic to get around them, putting my children in danger. That is unacceptable. May Olivette The law. Read it. Learn it. Drive to conditions. Show some responsibility. Glenn Brokenshire
