It is probably not a surprise to find that the RACT is against anything that might save cyclists lives.

There is not much point in discussing the matter here, with cyclists talking to cyclists.

We need cyclists talking to RACT.

If you use facebook, I urge you to go to the RACT facebook site and give them your thoughts.

The trouble is that if this is a reaction to the accident where the cyclist was killed; it would not have helped in this case as the driver claimed to not see the cyclist.
And this was a twin lane road!

It is futile to have a metre distance to Morons that can't even see a bike let alone give them a wide birth.

I will also write to RACT and ask why they don't consider cyclists as vehicles to go around and not push off the road.
