STOP CYCLE EVENTS ON THE PUBLIC HIGHWAYS

1 Comment 1st July 2010

I THINK THAT CYCLE EVENTS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN ON PUBLIC ROADS.

IT IS HIGHLY DANGEROUS FOR LARGE AMOUNT OF CYCLISTS TO BE TAKING PART IN SPEED TRIALS ETC WHEN OTHER TRAFFIC IS ON THE ROAD.

CYCLISTS DO NOT PAY ANY FORM OF ROAD TAX SO WHY SHOULD OTHER VEHICLES HAVE TO PUT UP WITH THE DISTRACTIONS AND INCONVENIENCE THAT CYCLISTS  CAUSE.

MOTORCYCLISTS HAVE TO PAY TAX – WHY NOT CYCLISTS.

MOTORCYCLISTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE EVENTS ON TEH PUBLIC ROAD – WHY CYCLISTS.

Why does this matter?

IT IS HIGHLY DANGEROUS FOR LARGE AMOUNTS OF CYCLISTS TO BE TAKING PART IN CYCLE EVENTS/SPEED TRIALS ON PUBLIC ROADS WHICH ARE IN USE.

CYCLISTS DO NOT PAY ANY FORM OF ROAD TAX SO WHY SHOULD OTHER ROAD USERS HAVE THE RISK OF DISTRACTION AND DANGER PLACED IN FRONT OF THEM.  THE ROADS ARE A RISKY PLACE ANYWAY WITHOUT THE ADDING TO IT. 

IF THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT AND A CYCLIST WAS INJURED OR (GOD FORBID) KILLED, DO WE THINK IT WOULD THE EVENTS TO BLAME.  NO IT WOULD BE THE OTHER ROAD USER.

THESE CYLCLISTS SHOULD BE MADE TO USE STADIUMS OR CIRCUITS FOR ANY EVENTS LIKE THIS.

ANY OTHER ROAD USER WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO ORGANISE EVENTS LIKE THIS ON PUBLIC ROADS WHILST THERE WAS FREE TRAFFIC-SO WHY ARE CYCLISTS ALLOWED.

  1. John O'Kelly says:

    Cyclist racing or speed trials should NOT be allowed on any public roads. They do not pay tax or insurance as other road users do. The volume of vehicle road traffic has increased ten fold which vehicle users pay for both in insurance and road tax. Cyclists do not pay anything but have all the benefits. They then complain that car and Motorcyclists are to blame for all accidents to cyclists! They very often travel in large groups three abreast and thirty/forty meters long and refuse to consider other road users. They are mostly a danger to other road users and themselves. The law should be amended to reflect the road changes and Cyclists should pay road tax and have compulsory insurance just the same as all other road users including some sort of Road Awareness Test Currently it is unfair against Car, Bus, Truck & Motorcyclists.
