Introduce new requirements for cyclists/e-scooters: visible ID, licences, etc
The Government should require cyclists and e-scooter riders display visible ID, require that cycle lanes be used where available, and introduce a licensing and penalty point system for all cyclists and licensing system for escooter riders.
Roads are now shared with more cyclists and e-scooters than ever. Yet cyclists and e-scooter riders aren`t currently held accountable in same way as drivers.
Cycle lanes can be safer yet are often not-used. A licence scheme and penalty points system should ensure responsible cycling and e-scooter use.
I welcome growth in cycling but this must be tempered with legislation to make roads safer for all.
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.
