Milne: Consider new local laws if one-metre cyclist buffer introduced

COUNCILLOR Glenn Milne says Mildura Council should consider banning cyclists from certain local roads if the Victorian Government introduces new rules that require motorists to give riders a one-metre buffer when overtaking. 

Cr Milne is concerned motorists may be fined for crossing double white lines if there’s not enough room on narrow roads and has questioned road users’ safety if the new rules come in. 

Mildura cycling infrastructure advocate Michael Jobe has slammed Cr Milne’s call as “irrelevant”.
