Advice to drivers to be aware of cyclists and give 1.5 space when overtaking 

This TV led campaign calls on motorists to keep a safe distance when overtaking cyclists on urban and rural roads. The campaign aims to educate motorists on recommended minimum passing distances.

The message is clear give a 1 metre clearance when over taking a cyclist in areas 50km/h and under and 1.5 metres in areas over 50km/h

The TV campaign is an adaptation of an advert from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) of the Victorian Government in Australia. The RSA secured a licence to reproduce it for public broadcast here in Ireland.

The campaign will be live the Month of November on TV, Video, Radio, Digital Audio and Social media posts across all RSA platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linked In)
