Safe Drivers and Vehicles

This week, two drivers were sentenced for killing cyclists whilst distracted by their satnavs.

Local Transport and Cycling Minister Norman Baker made the announcements today on a visit to Cambridge.

The story in many newspapers and other media of a 16-year-old, Ryan Smith, who is in a coma after being hit by a van, is tragic, but doesn't mean we should immediately adopt a policy of making helmets compulsory.

The sentence of a motorist convicted of killing a cyclist was "unduly lenient", a court has been told. Prosecutors are appealing the sentence of Gary McCourt, who was found guilty in April of causing the death of Audrey Fyfe by driving carelessly.

With a government announcement on cycling reportedly imminent, here are CTC's priorities for what we'd like it to say.

New figures from the Department for Transport show that for the second year in a row, cycle use appears to have increased sharply.

Scottish Transport Minister Keith Brown MSP has launched the Nice Way Code campaign to try and improve relations between all road users.

The driver who killed cyclist Anthony Hilson in September 2012, when she took her eyes off the road, has been convicted of causing his death by dangerous driving.

A cyclist who witnessed the aftermath of the crash which killed cyclist Alan Neve on the Holborn gyratory has written this letter to the Mayor of London, appealing to him to improve cycling infrastructure in the capital

CTC has welcomed the announcement to 'cycleproof' the major road network, which comes just two weeks after two cyclists were killed on the A30 in Cornwall.
