1EHZ730 close pass – police response

5 months ago...more

This is not the worst pass I've had, but because I passed over road markings & the vehicle can be seen to stay within the lane, I was able to demonstrate they could not have passed more than 0.7m from me.

A long way short of the 1.5m minimum.

The driver also had an empty lane available to them.

The police officer who this went to refused to take action. When I asked what it would take for him to do anything; "for you to ride further left".
There is no basis in law for riding in the gutter.

I submitted a complaint about the officer applying their own personal bias over actual law.

My complaint was ignored (this is not unusual). Until I escalated it to the police minister.

The driver was then spoken to as a result.
