Require all cyclists to have third party liability insurance
I would like the Government to require all bicyclists to have third party liability insurance, in case of accidents.
As a driver I have had so many near misses with bicycles, when cycling on pavement some cyclists do not slow down when coming up to a crossing, and nearly hit cars. Car drivers are required to have insurance to cover claims for personal injury and/or property damage should they cause an accident. I believe all cyclists should similarly be required to have insurance to cover any damage their negligence might cause.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
