Despite an announcement by the Mayor that “rogue lorries” will be stopped from entering London or fined if they do not have compulsory side guards and cyclist-friendly mirrors, 45 per cent of those living in the capital think there should be blanket ban on all HGVs in the busiest parts of the city.
Which has drawn the expected scorn. How do these people think deliveries get made, essential work gets done?
But what other findings did this survey make? And why aren’t they headlines?
The survey, by bicycle insurer Protect Your Bubble, also revealed more than eight in 10 Londoners think helmets should be made compulsory for cyclists and almost nine in 10 say cyclists should be made to undergo road safety tests.
More than two thirds of Londoners think issuing more cyclists with fixed penalty notices will improve road safety.
Very interesting! And no wonder the usual suspects would prefer you concentrated on something else…
