Cyclists on Britain’s roads especially central London has increased dramatically in the last 10 years.
With new initiatives such as The Cycle Superhighways it is thought that the number of people using bikes will increase by 400% by 2025.Despite this, cyclists are still the minority on the roads and there are more than 17,000 injuries a year due to other road users not taking note of cyclists on the roads.
Cyclists are starting to document their journeys and experiences on London’s roads with cameras fitted to their helmet.
It is thought that the more people that cycle, the safer the roads will become. The cameras will allow police to secure convictions for the most dangerous drivers – providing of course the evidence is clear.
It is hoped that any convictions made will be documented and will make road users more aware of their driving and enforce that careless driving will come with heavy penalties.
