As early as April this year, a trial will be conducted whereby motorists will be forced to give cyclists at least one metre clearance when passing. This will mean that motorists must maintain a minimum distance of one metre when passing a cyclist in a 60kph or less zone, and 1.5 metres when travelling above 60kph.
