Ever wonder why people become so disillusioned with our system of government? And those who represent us in the parliament?
Here is an example of a simple request of a government department that has seen our political representatives duck and weave, pass the buck and generally obfuscate until the person making the request runs out of energy to continue the pursuit….
It all started when the government introduced new laws governing the distance allowed between cyclists and passing vehicles.
In May 2018, after a 2 year trial, the Minimum Passing Distance became permanent law in NSW. Providing space when overtaking bike riders, is helping to protect our most vulnerable road users.
