‘Ellen’s Law’ to take effect in New Brunswick on Thursday
Cyclists and motorists in New Brunswick are being reminded that an amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act known as “Ellen’s Law” takes effect on Thursday.
With the amendment, drivers must leave at least one metre of open space between their vehicle and a bicycle, when passing a bike that’s travelling in the same direction.
If there’s not enough room in the lane, drivers are allowed to cross the centre line while passing bikes, when it is safe to do so.
