Road safety education

On the Road 65 Plus - Staying independent and safe

In partnership with TfNSW, Centre for Road Safety and NSW Police we are trialling an online educational presentation for seniors (and their families) who are out and about.

The expert panel will provide tips on safer choices when driving, walking, using public transport, older licencing and road rules.

The trial will be conducted via Zoom enabling participants to ask questions during the presentation.

We'll send interested participants an email with instructions to join the online discussion.There's no need to have any prior experience with Zoom.

Participants will go into a draw to win one of five road safety packs.

When: 10am Thursday 25 June

Cost: free

Bookings: email our Road Safety Officer, Kate McDougall by 24 June:

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.
