When driving 60km/h and under, a motor vehicle must provide bike riders 1 metre of space when overtaking.
When driving over 60km/h, a motor vehicle must provide 1.5 metres of space when overtaking.
The measurement is taken from the widest part of the bike (i.e. handle bars) to the widest part of the motor vehicle (i.e. a mirror)
Drivers will be exempt from the following rules, as long as it is safe to pass the bicycle rider with at least a metre of space and they have a clear view of approaching traffic:
When riding on shared path and footpaths, we strongly encourage riders to give pedestrians and other riders 1 metre of space when overtaking.
