TLI Cycling has welcomed the recent West Midlands Police initiative of becoming the first force in the country to proactively target "close pass" drivers who endanger riders. Rules of the road stipulate that motorists should give cyclists at least the same space as vehicles when overtaking.
Anyone encroaching inside that safe passing distance − widely considered to be a minimum of 1.5 metres − runs the risk of being prosecuted for driving without due care and attention.
To assist in public awareness, TLI Cycling has produced the car window sticker displayed above that will be posted out to all TLI Cycling members renewing or joining for 2017.
We would welcome enquiries from cycling clubs, bicycle shops, and other organisations who would be interested in distributing the stickers to their members and/or customers.
