Question 8237 (Overtaking on the left)

Bericht door amitbhavsar85 » 01 jun 2019, 18:46

Question 8237,
Question: If you want to overtake this cyclist on the left, you have to leave a safe space in between of 1,5 meter.- Answer is Yes
Chapter 15 (page 92) mentions that when overtaking pedestrian, cyclist, 2-wheel moped, lateral distance should be 1 meter.

So the answer is 1 meter or 1.5 meter?

Thanks,
Amit

It depends wether you're in or outside a built-up area (again, since May 31, 2019 :D)

Inside built-up area: 1 meters
Outside built-up area: 1,5 meters

The question will be updated to make the difference more clear :wink:

I can only link you to the changes in Dutch at this moment. I think the author of the book will update the 'updates page' on the website of the English book soon, but can't really confirm at this moment.

The sheer number of changes to traffic regulation, is a big issue in Belgium ...

But no-one gets "officially" notified
You have to read it in the papers, which often give wrong information ... oops :oops:
Or on specialised websites that virtually no-one reads ...

hmm! This is awful! :shock:
And I take the test and the lateral distance that one must keep while overtaking a pedestrian is 5 point question. I just hope that it is not 3rd or 4th degree violation! :D

Only passing less than 1m is a 3rd degree violation
The legislation to change that to 1.5m wasn't done.

The rule of the road, and the severity of the infractions, are 2 different sets of regulation ...
The text of the decree regulating the severity takes precedence over the text of the rules ...


Passing a pedestrian (Art 40.7) is a non-graded infraction, i.e. a 1st degree one
