Cyclists and Road Traffic Acts

Safety of cyclists

I would welcome the following changes

1) That cyclists be entitled to cross road junctions and pedestrian crossings on green whilst retaining priority for pedestrians

2) That cyclists be permitted to turn left on red lights when no other vehicles approach and it is safe to do so – this is the practise for all vehicles in Canada

Why does this idea matter?

This measure would give cyclists an additional measure of safety especially at busy junctions by enabling them to be ahead of other traffic.
