Petition for cyclists (UK)

Postby Rochellita » Thu May 03, 2007 9:58 am

Please encourage all (UK only) cyclists you know to sign the petition on the Prime Ministers website at:

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/roads4bikes/

"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to listen to cyclists and not approve the revised highway code"

More details from petition creator:

The new highway code requries cyclsits to use cycle facilities 'wherever possible'. Many facilities are of poor standard, or just plain dangerous. Cyclists should not be forced to use such facilities against their better judgement. In short, cyclists should be allowed to use the road.

the way i see it, as cycles (+ horses, peds, etc) use the road by right, and motorised vehicles use it by license, a cyclist has more of a right to be on the road than a driver. if i get creamed by a lorry, it will be my fault for not being on the cycle path. fucking car culture makes me sick...

C'mon UK riders! If your country can get behind stuff like this maybe mine will follow suit.

An even better idea would be to write to him. Write to your MEP too

You mean I should write the Prime Minister?
And what's a MEP?
