Cycling Scotland has launched a month-long campaign to urge drivers to give space to people on bikes.
More than a third (34%) of people living in Scotland don’t always leave 1.5 metres when overtaking someone cycling.
Every week in Scotland at least three people cycling suffer serious, life-changing injuries, usually from a collision with a vehicle.
64% of people don’t know they could get three points on their licence for driving too close to someone cycling on Scotland’s roads (a nine per cent improvement since last year).
Some key points to remember when passing people on bikes:
The Give Cycle Space campaign is supported by Police Scotland. Police Scotland is conducting Operation Close Pass in locations across Scotland to educate drivers about giving space.
Cycling benefits our health and happiness - to encourage more people to cycle, we need them to feel safe. Find out more: www.cycling.scot/what-we-do/campaigns/give-cycle-space
