Cyclists should be required to register and display plates to use the roads. This way when they break the highway code they can be traced either through cctv camera records or witness statements.

The behaviour of cyclists in London is of particular concern having taken my life in my own hands to cross a zebra crossing which pedal cyclists completely ignoring the rules. They have no identifable markings and so are impossible to trace.

I wouldn't apply a charge for registration but I would apply fixed penalty notices to the registered owner for infringements and fine those who are not registered. The DVLA could handle these records and this would also make stolen bikes easier to trace too.

Why is this idea important?

Cyclists are a hazzard who expect to be given additional consideration when a large percentage show no consideration for other road users. As a car driver I am paying for the roads they abuse.
