LCC needs to acknowledge importance of bad cycling
I am both a daily cyclist (and LCC member) and a car driver. Last night on Radio 5 live there was a real opportunity to get the public more on cyclists side since there was an item about cycling, bad cycling. However I feel the LCC rep. on the programme lost this wonderful opportunity to get the public on cyclists side.
There was a discussion about cyclists going through red lights with little regard to others -bad cycling like this not only causes accidents it really annoys members of the public and drains away cyclists seeking public support for safer cycling facilities.
So next time LCC rather than being defensive about cyclists behaving badly, as the LCC rep. was last night in my view the LCC needs to acknowledge that this a problem which needs addressing.
