Use of bicycles on pavements

Comment 6th July 2010

The legislation that banns the use of pedal cycles on footpaths and pavements is in need to be repealed. The argument that cycles cause a danger to footpath users is acknowledged but more serious injury can be caused to cyclists on roads in dangerous areas that are heavily trafficked. This is a 'nanny state' rule and should be binned.

Please support this suggestion

Why does this matter?

Avoids unnecessary call on police and law enforcement time, allows civil liberties for an environmentally friendly mode of transport to be returned, will reduce rather than increase potential injury of highway (road and footway) users
