Road safety and cycling: Overview - 15 Nov 2016 - Campaigning Views
'More' as well as 'safer' cycling can and should go hand-in-hand.

 
 
Traffic police and other enforcement agencies - 9 Nov 2016 - Campaigning Views
More effective traffic policing is crucial for cyclists, and also helps tackle one of the biggest fears that many others have about taking up cycling in the first place - namely, bad driving.

 
 
Goods vehicles (lorries, HGVs, vans etc) - 9 Nov 2016 - Campaigning Views
Lorries pose a disproportionate threat to cyclists. There is a range of measures that should be introduced to reduce the hazard as a matter or urgency.

80-year-old George Barrett was sentenced today to a suspended prison term, having been convicted of causing the death of cyclist and Cycling UK member Ian Jobson by careless driving.
