Changes to the provincial Motor Vehicle Act that offered more safety for cyclists have been in effect now for around three months.
The movement to have the changes made was inspired by Ellen Watters a well-known cyclist who died while riding near Sussex.
Sheila Cameron, Moncton co-organizer for the Ellen’s Law movement, says they are starting to notice a difference.
“We actually started noticing it in the winter because there was so much profile around Ellen’s Law and the one metre passing rule for more courtesy from drivers. So we’re really pleased about that,” she notes.
Cameron says one concern they are still having is that some cars will not cross the yellow line to allow for more space for the cyclists.
She adds they are holding monthly meetings with the government to look at other ways to make the roads even safer for cyclists.
