Cyclists and motorists sharing the road safely – Source: Sunday Times 12th February 2017

Cyclists, curb your stupidity.

I notice that collisions between cyclists and pedestrians have increased by 50 per cent. Up from 274 in 2009 to 408 in 2015. As a cyclist, I’m duty bound to point out this apparently significant increase comes from a very low base. It is also surely consistent with the considerable – and welcome – renaissance in two-wheeled transportation- in recent years.

And yet I can’t help but notice that some of my fellow cyclists are utter prats. Jumping red lights and ignoring
one-way signals are one thing – if you’re putting only yourself at risk, that’s your lookout. Mounting the
pavement and scaring – or injuring – old ladies, however, is unforgivable. Yes, our city streets are still inexcusably dangerous for those of us who choose to negotiate them by bike.

But the solution is not to abandon the road and make others vulnerable instead.
