Bicycle NSW and the Amy Gillett Foundation met with Assistant Commissioner Michael Corboy, senior representatives of NSW Police and the Centre for Road Safety to discuss issues for bike riders in NSW.

We were encouraged to hear that Police, through operation Vello, had started trying to change the behaviour of drivers passing too close to people riding bikes. All parties identified room for improvement and opportunities to help each other in improving cycling safety in NSW.
“We look forward to helping Police and the Centre for Road Safety deliver a safer riding environment in NSW,” said General Manager of Public Affairs, Bastien Wallace.
