Road safety education
We work in partnership with NSW Roads and Maritime Services to deliver the Local Government Road Safety Program. This program allows our Road Safety Officer to implement community education campaigns that target road safety at a local level.
Road rule reminder – vehicle passing a bicycle rider
When passing a bicycle rider all drivers and motorcycle riders must leave a distance of at least:
- 1 metre when the speed limit is 60km/h or less
- 1.5 metres in higher speed zones.
The rule is designed to reduce the chance of a crash when a vehicle passes a bicycle rider.
Drivers who do not comply with the rule may receive a $330 fine and two demerit points.
