Irish cyclists are asked what they think of a 1.5 metre passing distance

Is it time to standardise a minimum safe passing distance of 1.5 metres into road traffic legislation in Ireland — that’s the focus of an online survey being conducted by the Dublin Cycling Campaign.

Respondents who enter draw can win prizes including a €150 voucher from BimBimBikes and a signed Stayin’ Alive at 1.5 jersey from Sean Kelly.

The survey is open until the end of August and the results are expected to be presented at the Irish Transport Research Network conference in September.
