Cycling Identification Law Enforcement Budget Direct Survey The Age


"but most said cyclists should be registered so they could be identified if they broke road rules."

"It's nothing sinister but a lot of people are saying they get nervous when bicycles do silly things on the road … they feel cyclists should be held accountable."

A survey commissioned last month by car insurer Budget Direct found 50 per cent of Melbourne motorists surveyed supported the introduction of a cyclist registration fee.

Some who want cyclists registered said bike riders should pay for infrastructure costs like other road users, 

but most said cyclists should be registered so they could be identified if they broke road rules.

Budget Direct spokeswoman Richelle Ward said drivers were tired of putting up with cyclists who regularly flouted the law but could not be reported. 

"A lot of people feel very strongly about this," she said.

"It's nothing sinister but a lot of people are saying they get nervous when bicycles do silly things on the road … they feel cyclists should be held accountable.

"The problem isn't (children) on the road. 

It's when cyclists are ducking in and out of traffic and running red lights."
