Give cycle space campaign

73% of people don’t know they could get three points on their licence for driving too close to someone cycling. Our road safety campaign helps to raise awareness.

Every week in Scotland, at least three people cycling suffer serious injuries, usually from a collision with a vehicle.

Our new cycling road safety campaign encourages drivers to give space to people on bikes and highlights the legal consequences if they don’t. People can get a fixed penalty of three points on their driving licence and be fined £100 or receive a criminal conviction for more serious offences.

The campaign is delivered in partnership with Police Scotland and raises awareness of their national Operation Close Pass initiative.  This road safety operation educates drivers who have driven dangerously or carelessly around people on bikes.
