Ban for close passes during lock down?

There is virtually no traffic on the roads and still I'm being close-passed. If people can't drive safely when there's nothing except their own vehicle and one bicycle to deal with, how can we expect them to cope in normal circumstances. In the absence of any mitigation, would it not be reasonable to ban anyone who close-passes now for being demonstrably incompetent?

One a day so far, on predominantly rural roads, including a van driver who decided to overtake level with a parked car, a driver forcing her way past on a single track road, a scaffolding lorry driver who couldn't be bothered to move over at all, etc. It's worse than my normal daily ride into London.
