RE­STRICT RID­ERS

Melville Times - - Opinion -

THERE has been a lot of dis­cus­sion about cy­clists on the road.

It is my opin­ion that not all cy­clists should not be al­lowed on the road. There should be a min­i­mum age for a per­son to ride on the road.

Cy­clists should not be on the road till an hour af­ter day­light to an hour be­fore dark, no mat­ter whether they have lights on their bike or not.

Some busy roads, par­tic­u­larly with trucks or heavy traf­fic, should not al­low cy­clists at all.

Most road ac­ci­dents in­volv­ing a cy­clist and a mo­tor ve­hi­cle usu­ally hap­pens early morn­ing or late af­ter­noon.

Lo­cal coun­cils spend thou­sands of dol­lars build­ing ex­cel­lent bike paths to keep cy­clists safe. It all gets down to com­mon sense. FRANK GRANGER Ap­ple­cross
