A supporter of the Cyclists' Defence Fund has raised £215.60 for the ‘Justice for Michael’ appeal by showing a screening of the documentary ‘Bikes vs Cars’.

CTC has been following two cases where lorry drivers were found guilty of killing cyclists and where questions were raised about the safety credentials of the goods vehicle operators that hired them.

Over eight decades the Driving Test has undergone many changes but, as we know from bitter experience fighting for justice for cyclists at CTC, a minority of drivers do not understand how to drive safely near cyclists. That is why CTC's Victoria Hazael wants to see a few changes made to the test.

Under pressure from Michael Mason's family's campaign for justice, the Metropolitan Police have backtracked on their decision not to pass the case file involving his death to the Crown Prosecution Service for review.
