Single File Please
Hi everyone, our Petition for Compulsory Single File came into being when it became obvious our roads are set to experience a massive growth in registered vehicles in the next 4 years. For example, in Australia it's estimated we'll have at least 1.4 million MORE cars on our roads in just four years from now. And in the middle of this, there will be an explosion of poorly disciplined road cyclists causing friction with all those other road users. Clearly, it's a problem that needs to be solved. We're happy to concede the Safe Passing Laws are good laws, they're well intentioned but they do have a flaw. When the legislation was implemented cyclists were under no obligation to change anything regarding their own behaviour. And therein lies the crux of the problem, as we see it. Even if cyclists are riding illegally 4 wide, motorists are still obliged to give 1m of safe distance around the widest rider or they themselves can be fined for unsafe driving. We believe Compulsory Single File will make a massive difference to Road Safety, especially when a Bike Lane exists.
