In 2015, the Australian Capital Territory will become the second jurisdiction in Australia to introduce minimum passing distances for motorists overtaking bike riders, creating a significantly safer environment for vulnerable road users.

The most common bike rider fatality crash type is being hit from behind by a motor vehicle travelling in the same direction.

 

Refining existing laws to provide a measurable benchmark for safe overtaking distance is the leading action needed to reduce fatal and high-threat-to-life tragedies.

The Amy Gillett Foundation’s a metre matters campaign has spearheaded the national effort for state and territory governments to implement minimum overtaking distance legislation.

 

By supporting the Foundation through Amy’s Big Canberra Bike Ride 2015, you are directly contributing to the robust awareness, education and evaluation campaigns the AGF will deliver and support in the ACT to ensure the new legislation is effective in saving lives.
 

The fundraising objective of Amy's Big Canberra Bike Ride 2015 is to raise at least $25,000 to strengthen the Foundation's work in the ACT.

Your support will help save lives.
