A sticker and poster design competition, to Increase Awareness of Safe Passing Distances between motorists & cyclists.
Minimum Passing Distance (MPD) requires 1.0 metre of clearance for cyclists on roads with a speed limit of up to 60 km/hour, and 1.5 metres (speeds over 60 km/hour). The road rule exemptions permit motorists to cross lines (including double unbroken centre lines), to straddle lane lines and to drive on painted islands in order to pass cyclists, but only when it is safe to do so.
Winning designs will be printed in full colour, and will be distributed around the Inner West and South of Sydney. Competition entries will deliver fresh creative content, new slogans, and marketing collateral to raise awareness of Safe Passing Distance.
Greater awareness of safe passing rules will reduce injuries and deaths on NSW Roads… It is only possible to move Towards Zero with much greater awareness and active enforcement of Minimum Passing Distance.
