NSW drivers will now be required to leave minimum gaps while passing cyclists or face loss of demerit points and hefty fines.
It comes after a successful two-year trial of the rules which resulted in a 15 per cent reduction in bicycle and vehicle crashes.
Drivers must now provide a distance of one metre when the speed limit is 60km/hr or less.
Once you are over 60km/hr the distance bumps up to 1.5m.
Drivers found in breach of these rules will face a penalty of $330 and two demerit points.
What do you think of these changes?
