THERE has been a lot of discussion about cyclists on the road. It is my opinion that not all cyclists should be allowed on the road. There should be a minimum age for a person to ride on the road.
Cyclists should not be on the road until an hour after daylight to an hour before dark, no matter whether they have lights on their bike or not. Some busy roads, particularly those with trucks or heavy traffic, should not allow cyclists at all.
Most road accidents involving a cyclist and a motor vehicle usually happen early morning or late afternoon.
Local councils spend thousands of dollars building excellent bike paths to keep cyclists safe. It all gets down to common sense.
FRANK GRANGER, Applecross
I would like to reply to Mr Granger so if you have any suggested points to make please do share. I will probably check the BITRE crash data which I suspect does not support Mr Granger views and then of course is the actual crash data for motor vehicles. Anything else to add?
