West Midlands Police is the first force in the country to target motorists like this, but many drivers say it's not always possible to leave the one and a half metres the law dictates. Chris Halpin reports.
Cycling safety advocate Chris Boardman has described the death of his mother while cycling as a ‘horrible irony’.
Drivers face being prosecuted in the West Midlands if they do not give cyclists enough room on the road.
