“Cyclists who break the law are much more likely to be killed or seriously injured”
Bicycle Victoria’s Report into Cycle Deaths in Victoria (2002).
“may be found to be negligent where a failure to take reasonable care results in some injury or loss.”
Cycling behaviour modification is best addressed off road before people take up cycling.
If cycling is to be a serious form of transport and I argue cycling should be a serious form of transport then the Victorian Government Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources, the Victorian Cycling Community and Victoria’s Cycling Strategy must take Cyclists’ responsibilities seriously.
