Support the Minimum Passing Distance Legislation!

Stayin’ Alive at 1.5, Cork Cycling Campaign, Cyclist.ie, and many other cycling and road safety groups strongly support proposed Minimum Passing Distance Legislation (MPDL) to require a minimum distance between vehicles passing cyclists.  MPDLs are now operative in a total of 42 jurisdictions around the world and have proven successful in saving lives in other countries.

What can you do?  Please download and modify the document:

MPDL, blood alcohol – Letters to TDs

Send it to your local TD to encourage them to support the Minimum Passing Distance Legislation (as well as changes to drink driving penalties).  Better yet, speak directly to your TD and emphasise how important legislation on minimum passing distances is to improve the safety of cyclists!
