Dear South Australia Police,
I request any documents/statistics available for "Overtake when not safe to do so (including minimum distance for passing a cyclist)" ARR 140; as described by http://mylicence.sa.gov.au/road-rules/cy...

Specifically:
- Documents that describe aggregate number of offenses/fines issued between 2015-current, such as a periodic report
- Documents that describe the aggregate number of reports, complaints or statements regarding close passes, regardless of if it resulted in a fine/prosecution/etc from 2015-current, such as a perodic report
- Any internal guidance or training material to officers regarding the introduction of the law, and standards required for prosecution. For example, documents discussing cycling camera footage vs likelyhood of successful prosecution

Yours faithfully,

Daniel O'Connor
