Safe pass campaign

The close pass campaign was initiated by West Midlands police, with the push from some of their road unit officers. Training has been cascaded across the country and many areas are looking to act on this with an emphasis on targetting offenders.

The aim is to ensure that drivers overtaking vulnerable road users follow the Highway Codes guidance on giving as much room as for a car when so doing. Nominally the distance is 1.5 m but at higher speeds a greater distance may be advised.
