Closed petition Make cycle lane use mandatory for bicycles where safe cycle lanes are provided

Make the use of cycle lanes mandatory for all bicycles, electric bicycles and push scooters where cycle lanes are provided (this includes pop up cycle lanes)

Cyclists who fail to use provided lanes put themselves at increased risk of injury, and litigation by riding in traffic &having an accident

More details

All over the country local authorities are investing millions in creating new cycling infrastructure both to encourage safe riding & reduce pollution as a result of increased cycle uptake and reduced car use

Some cyclists do not use cycle lanes where provided. This increases their risk of being involved in a serious or fatal incident with a vehicle & also increases claims against motorists regardless of fault

Making cycle lanes mandatory could reduce the number of injuries & fatalities on the road
