Finn white line

The Sunday Times - - YOUR SAY WA -

While in Helsinki, Fin­land, I was im­pressed with the way they sep­a­rate cy­clists from cars and pedes­tri­ans.

There are paths for cy­clists and pedes­tri­ans next to roads, and I no­ticed the ma­jor­ity of cy­clists weren’t wear­ing hel­mets. I asked if there were many ac­ci­dents in­volv­ing cy­clists and cars, and the an­swer was “vir­tu­ally none”. Why can’t we have de­cent bike lanes on our ma­jor roads, in­stead of all the road nar­row­ing we now have? KAYE ROSS Bal­catta
