    Whatever your opinion on a one-meter passing law, good data is hard to come by to know for sure either way.  It might be the #157th most important thing to make riding a bike safer and more popular, or it might be the next best thing after protected bike lanes and filtered permeability.  States that have introduced this law have done no before-and-after studies to determine whether there was any effect, beneficial or otherwise. Victoria may introduce a 1m law soon, so time is short to rectify this data deficit and get measurements before a law exists, and to continue with measurement after a law is introduced.

    You can help by volunteering to mount a PassBox on your bike for a week on our website for this project at http://passboxmelbourne.com/.

  • City of Melbourne Elections

    (0) September 11, 2016

    Read our Our detailed plan for South Bank Boulevard and then sign the petition!

    Our petition has the key improvements that Melbourne needs to attract more people to cycling for everyday trips. Except for St Kilda Rd lanes, Council hasn’t supported these in the past, so we will be asking candidates to sign a pledge to support these things:

    • Protected lanes with protected intersections on Southbank Boulevard
    • The 2016-2020 bicycle plan – implemented in full
    • Protected lanes on St Kilda Road
    • A safe route through the south side of the CBD
    • Protected lanes on Flemington Road.
