Legislate for a safe distance between motorists and cyclists

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Allan Wood
21 Leeson Street

Total Signatures - 27

Sponsoring Member: Jack Dempsey MP

Posting Date: 22/03/2011

Tabled Date: 22/03/2011

Responded By: Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk MP on 19/04/2011

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the need to modify existing legislation requiring that motorists maintain a minimum one metre buffer between their vehicle and a cyclist while overtaking or approaching.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to pass this proposal and provide clear boundaries as it will assist in reducing the incidence of injury and death caused by the interaction between cyclists and motorists.
