UK loses billions of pounds due to dangerous roads which deter cyclists from visiting the UK.

The UK is losing billions of pounds and millions of people are unemployed because our roads are so dangerous. People from countries with safe cycling and respect on the roads, like the Netherlands, are horrified by the brutal reality of UK roads. This is a shame because we could be a Great country for cycling and create millions of new jobs, with safe roads for cyclists. For example, it is safe to cycle to Ouistreham in France, the ship to Portsmouth is safe but from The Port on to London and Harwich for the ship back to Holland, well, the UK roads are just ridiculous and there is no legal framework for automatic compensation so drivers just mow people like us down. Not OK. Do something about this ! Goto Holland and be safe, stay alive ! This is true, I an too afraid for my children to try cycling on UK roads. Cycle paths here are very limited. Therefore millions of people stay away from the UK as it is just too dangerous to cycle here ! Really, this is the Olympic year 2012, why no safe cycling in all UK ?

"The UK is losing billions of pounds and millions of people are unemployed because our roads are so dangerous."

Really?

Millions staying away from the UK because roads aren't as cycle-friendly as those in Holland?

Millions unemployed because roads aren't as cycle-friendly as those in Holland?

Drivers mowing down cyclists, only beacuse there is no automatic compensation?

Hmmmm.
