WEST MIDLANDS, ENGLAND: ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CLOSE PASS DRIVERS

Biking Elsewhere-> BikeBiz reports the number of cyclists killed or seriously injured on the roads of the West Midlands, England has dropped by 20% since the regional police force last year launched an operation targeting so-called "close-pass" drivers. Motorists who overtook cyclists too closely can "expect prosecution, not education," said a strongly worded statement issued by the West Midlands Police Traffic Unit. The statement added that it was motorists mostly at fault in road crashes involving cyclists and said the force has a "zero tolerance approach for any offence involving a vulnerable road user." http://bit.ly/2fLvQPA
