Dazzling bike lights - 12 Sep 2014 - Blog
Time was, when the suggestion that a bike lamp could be too bright would have been laughable. How times change. CTC's Chris Juden explains that thanks to developments in LEDs and rechargeable batteries, our dim and unreliable ‘bobby dodgers’ have become bobby dazzlers!

 
 
If ever there was a case that demonstrated the need to impose immediate interim driving bans on drivers that kill cyclists, this is it. CTC's Road Safety Campaigner Rhia Weston examines the evidence.

 
 
CTC is disappointed to learn that Jersey's legislature has agreed to make it compulsory for under-14-year-olds to wear helmets, despite fears that the overall public health will suffer if people are deterred from cycling.

 
 
Bristol Cycling Campaign (BCyC) is an excellent example of a group of local campaigners who have wholeheartedly got behind the Road Justice campaign by ramping up pressure on their local force to improve roads policing.

 
 
The Commons Transport Select Committee's inquiry report on Cycle Safety has been published, endorsing many of CTC's recommendations.

 
 
CTC, the national cycling charity, has analysed data showing that only 80% of motorists convicted of killing another road user have their licence taken away, compared to 94% ten years ago.

 
 
After cyclist Kristian Gregory posted helmet-cam footage of himself being fined for straying from a sub-standard cycle track, the Met Police say they will ease off 'over-zealous' enforcement on this spot. However, Kristian still faces a possible fine, as do many others fined for similar 'offences'.

 
 
The release of the latest reported road casualties for Great Britain show that cyclist serious injuries and deaths dropped in 2013. Combined with the news earlier this month that cycle use has risen slightly, this looks like a positive story.
