About the campaign

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

The road rules in Tasmania help protect cyclists. 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.
