Profession reacts: make London safer for cyclists

Comment

I cycle almost daily in London, and experience risks every week. Construction Vehicles are only part of the problem. In North London mothers in large SUV's running late on the school run, are a particular problem. As are motorist's on phones, and generally distracted or failing to pay sufficient attention at road junctions - presumably due in part to time pressures. Road safety awareness is arguably higher now than at any point in the recent past and yet some motorists continue to drive in an anti-social or downright wreckless manner. Greater Police powers to prosecute needs to become a priority - and cyclists must be able to record and report the vehicle registration numbers of careless drivers with a view to repeat offenders being excluded from driving for a minimum six month period. Their insurance premiums would rise as a consequence, and they would them moderate their behavior Chris Roche Founder 11.04 Architects.
