There have been a number of accidents in recent weeks involving cyclists with a number of motorists calling cyclists to observe certain safety measures. Many cyclists have been caught breaking road laws – most notably by jumping a red light. Bystanders of the accident in which a cyclist in Croydon was killed saw the cyclist blocking the bus’s right of way. This is common behaviour among many bike commuters.
On the other hand, cyclists have raised uproar at the behaviour towards cyclists by other road users. Earlier this year, Emma Way, was convicted of driving offences after a collision with a cyclist which she then tweeted about.
One thing both arguments have in common is that much change is needed to improve the safety of cyclists on roads.
