Cyclist seriously injured in La Orotava – and new Tráfico rules for overtaking cyclists

It’s worth stressing that under the new road legislation recently passed – which has mainly generated interest for its new drink-drugs penalties and child seat clauses – there are new rules for cars in the vicinity of cyclists. A minimum of 1.5m leeway is now a legal requirement on all roads and in all circumstances before a car may overtake a cyclist, and if a car is coming from the opposite direction, a cyclist may not be overtaken even if a 1.5m leeway exists.
