Cyclist safety initiative launched

Police have launched a new initiative to help keep cyclists safe.

'Operation Safe Pass' aims to educate drivers on the safest way to overtake those on bikes.

A cyclist, who is also a police officer will now be on roads across the Islands, and will speak to drivers who try to pass them too closely.

The driver will then be shown a specially designed mat demonstrating safer passing distances.

The constabulary says it's already had to speak to several motorists, and hopes it'll make the Island a safer place for all.
