Safe Drivers and Vehicles

Cyclists have shown overwhelming support for Alex Paxton's challenge of the FPN he received a few weeks ago. Individual donors have given a total of £2669.50. Alex has submitted his request for a hearing in the Magistrates court to contest the FPN.

 
 
A few weeks ago, Alex Paxton was issued with a fixed penalty notice (FPN) for failing to stop at a red light, yet all he was doing was positioning himself in front of a car which had illegally occupied the advanced stop box.

 
 
A package of measures announced today by Transport Minister Stephen Hammond and London Mayor Boris Johnson to help make cycling conditions safer in the capital is good news, says CTC.

 
 
Transport Minister Norman Baker announced last night during the Parliamentary debate on how to Get Britain Cycling, that the ACPO roads policing lead has agreed to rewrite the ACPO guidance on the enforcement of 20 mph limits.

 
 
This week, two drivers were sentenced for killing cyclists whilst distracted by their satnavs.

 
 
Local Transport and Cycling Minister Norman Baker made the announcements today on a visit to Cambridge.

 
 
The story in many newspapers and other media of a 16-year-old, Ryan Smith, who is in a coma after being hit by a van, is tragic, but doesn't mean we should immediately adopt a policy of making helmets compulsory.

 
 
The sentence of a motorist convicted of killing a cyclist was "unduly lenient", a court has been told. Prosecutors are appealing the sentence of Gary McCourt, who was found guilty in April of causing the death of Audrey Fyfe by driving carelessly.

 
 
With a government announcement on cycling reportedly imminent, here are CTC's priorities for what we'd like it to say.

 
 
New figures from the Department for Transport show that for the second year in a row, cycle use appears to have increased sharply.
