Reminder: new cycling laws have taken effect
26 October 2015
Changes to road rules setting a minimum distance for overtaking cyclists and allowing all age cycling on footpaths have taken effect.
The changes encourage all road users to better share the road, while also maintaining pedestrians’ safety on footpaths.
The new minimum passing distance rule is aimed at ensuring drivers provide enough space when passing cyclists to protect some of the most vulnerable road users.
The laws also allow for vehicles to legally cross double lines to give cyclists the required space but only when it is safe to do so.
In many cases motorists were already crossing double lines to give adequate space to cyclists and this change recognises that and makes it legal.
South Australia is not the first state to make this change. All-age cycling on footpaths is also legal in Queensland, Tasmania, the ACT and the Northern Territory.
Cyclists must ride with due care at all times. When on the footpath, cyclists are still legally required to give way to all pedestrians, to keep left, to ride at a safe speed and to sound a warning bell or similar to alert pedestrians of their approach when necessary.
The intention of these changes is to ensure that everyone who uses our roads and our footpaths does so respectfully, and with common sense and safety in mind.
South Australia Police will allow for a three-month education period to enable all road users to adjust to the changes.
Full details of the changes are available at www.mylicence.sa.gov.au
