About the campaign

Everyone has the to use the road safely. Cyclists don’t have the protection of a vehicle but interact with them.

New road rules in Tasmania will help protect cyclists. It is now the law that a driver must be at least one metre from a cyclist when passing on roads that have a speed limit of up to 60km/h and one-and-half metres on roads with speed limits above 60.

Cyclists can travel two abreast, not more than one-and-half metres apart and take the whole lane if necessary to be visible. And cyclists can ride on pedestrian crossings.
