Some 96% of drivers in Scotland accept that a ‘close pass’ must be frightening for people cycling while 90% said there should be more protection for cyclists, new research shows. However, the survey also showed that 89% of drivers admitted to sometimes being frustrated when passing someone on a bike.
The survey, and involving 507 Scotland-based drivers, was commissioned by Cycling Scotland as part of its Give Cycle Space campaign. This includes a TV ad showing a ‘close pass’ from the perspective of a cyclist.
