Transport Select Committee

A House of Commons Committee has officially recognised many of CTC’s concerns about cycling safety in its report on its inquiry into road traffic law enforcement, published on 15 March 2016. It also supports a range of solutions we have been recommending for some time and raised in the evidence we submitted to the inquiry, both orally and in writing. We now urge the Government to implement them.

 
 
Cycling UK, the national cycling charity, has urged the Government to say it will fully implement the recommendations of a Commons Committee report on “Road traffic law enforcement”, saying this could have huge benefits for the safety of everyone who uses our roads, particularly the most vulnerable.

 
 
CTC has marked Road Safety Week with two appearances in Parliament and one on Radio 4, calling for action to reduce lorry danger

 
 
CTC has urged MPs to support increased resources for roads policing to improve safety for all road users. CTC’s Policy Director Roger Geffen told the Commons Transport Select Committee that cycle use has grown slowly but steadily since the late 1990s, but the risk per mile of a serious cycling injury started to increase from 2008.

 
 
CTC's campaigns and communications co-ordinator Sam Jones discusses whether the latest Governmental response on cycling is further evidence of cycling's need for strong political leadership

 
 
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 urged MPs to demand leadership, commitment to quality cycling conditions, and funding of at least £10 per person annually, to ‘Get Britain Cycling’ when giving evidence at today’s Commons Transport Select Committee inquiry on cycle safety.

 
 
As MPs demand answers on cycle safety, CTC says that raising people's awareness of risk, and training them to avoid it, are the best 'quick wins'. But the 'big wins' involve reducing it.

 
 
CTC is urging Ministers to show much stronger leadership on encouraging more and safer cycling, after a lamentably weak response to the Commons Transport Select Committee’s inquiry earlier this year on road safety.

 
 
A report from the Transport Select Committee has criticised the Government over the handling of cycle safety. The report emerged following evidence given by CTC and CTC's President Jon Snow earlier in the year.
