road safety

Cyclist wait at junction
Road safety and cycling: Overview - 11 Nov 2015 - Campaigning Views
'More' as well as 'safer' cycling can and should go hand-in-hand.

Goods vehicle
Goods vehicles (lorries, HGVs, vans etc) - 5 Nov 2015 - Campaigning Views
Lorries pose a disproportionate threat to cyclists. There is a range of measures that should be introduced to reduce the hazard as a matter or urgency.

Driver at wheel of car
Common driving offences - 30 Oct 2015 - Campaigning Views
Tackling common, bad driving offences effectively would help create a safer and more attractive environment for cycling and walking.

Cyclist and pedestrian sharing space
Pedestrians - 15 Oct 2015 - Campaigning Views
Even in crowded conditions, cyclists are perfectly able to mix harmoniously with pedestrians and, contrary to popular belief, they are not a major danger to them.

Cyclists' behaviour and the law - 15 Oct 2015 - Campaigning Views
Cyclists should behave responsibly and legally, but the law should recognise that they do little harm and should not have to choose between keeping safe and obeying rules.

Healthy cyclist
Health and cycling - 16 Jul 2015 - Campaigning Views
Cycling is good exercise and it's easy to fit into the daily routiine. If more people took it up, it could help ward off the health crises facing the NHS.

Cyclist and police car
Traffic police and other enforcement agencies - 27 Feb 2015 - Campaigning Views
More effective traffic policing is crucial for cyclists, and also helps tackle one of the biggest fears that many others have about taking up cycling in the first place - namely, bad driving.

Cyclist and motorcyclist
Motorcycles - 6 Feb 2015 - Campaigning Views
Motorcyclists and cyclists have much in common, but motorcycling poses more risk to others and does not offer the same environmental benefits.

Cycle helmets - 14 Jan 2015 - Campaigning Views
There is no justification for making helmet-wearing compulsory - it could undermine levels of cycle use and, in any case, the effectiveness of helmets is far from clear.

Cyclist on path
Daylight saving - 14 Jan 2015 - Campaigning Views
Shifting the UK’s clocks to give one extra hour of daylight in the evening and one less in the morning would affect everyone. Research should help decide if cyclists would benefit.
