Monitoring of how close cars are travelling to cyclists in Canberra

First two paragraphs:

'Twenty Canberra bikes have been fitted with devices that will track how closely cars are travelling to cyclists in a four-week study aimed at measuring compliance with the ACT's minimum passing rule.

'The University of Adelaide-led research will also examine how traffic and infrastructure affects adherence to the rule, which requires drivers to maintain a minimum distance of one metre when overtaking cyclists in a 60km/h zone. A greater distance is required in higher-speed areas'.

[end of extract]
