Heartfelt sympathies are due to anyone who has suffered flooding misery in this year’s unprecedented rainfall.
Have your say
i have lost count how many times i have seen a cyclist on the road when they have a cycle path they can use,red light what red light? again they think they don't count and don't get me going on riding 2 abreast making it more difficult/dangerious to get past!!!
Andy Smith, I see your point about lights and batteries, and generally have two lights, but that wasn't the only point I was trying to make. Do you see that people on bikes might be getting bit of a raw deal? A lot of people will not ride a bike because they are frightened of the traffic which is a missed opportunity for a lot of good value freedom and fun.
@ SamSeriously ???.....Cyclists have the same responsibilty as motorists to ensure that their vehicle is fit and legal to be on the roads, that includes having working lights fitted and on at night. If the batteries have run out they should get new batteries, if the lights have been stolen they should get new lights. They certainly shouldn't be cycling on the road, at night, with no illumination and if they choose to ignore that and get hit by a motorist who has kept his vehicle in good repair and function as is required by the same law, then it is their own stupid fault
