ACT retains passing minimum distance laws

After a trial, the ACT government has decided to retain mandatory minimum passing distances for motorists passing cyclists.  Read more in the Canberra Times article.

Do you think we should follow this lead in Victoria?  Currently the law only specified a ‘safe’ passing distance and the government has funded an education campaign.

WA has a minimum passing distance of 1m for speed limits of 60kph or less and 1.5 m for speeds over 60kph.
