The Queensland report “Evaluation of the Queensland Minimum Passing Distance Road Rule” mentions,
’‘In conclusion, from the perspective of police officers, the introduction of the MPD road rule has improved cyclist safety despite the difficulties of enforcement leading to few infringements being issued.
The Queensland report details the fatality rate per month for cyclists and other road users for before to after the passing rule, both reduced with rate ratios of 0.65 for cyclists and 0.86 for other road users.

CTC/Cycling UK probably need to contact various groups, Brake, RoSPA and others to arrange a meeting to discuss how best to promote a passing law, a bit like, the Amy Gillett Foundation’s ‘a metre matters’ campaign, launched in November 2009 is based around a simple premise – drivers not hitting bicycle riders. They publish evidence in support and detail their approach.
