Safe mobility is essential to a healthy, vibrant city for all residents.
In order to make our streets safer for everyone regardless of how they move around Edmonton, the City has passed a Charter Bylaw to set minimum safe passing distances that motor vehicle drivers need to give cyclists when passing them on the road.
The required distance is a minimum of:
- 1 metre between the vehicle and the bicycle where the posted speed limit is 60 km/h or less, and
- 1.5 metres between the vehicle and the bicycle where the posted speed limit is greater than 60 km/h
This change is effective as of September 30, 2021.
