Cy­clist law too loose

The Sunday Times - - YOUR SAY WA -

I con­cur with Gra­ham Smith of Ea­ton (Your Say, Nov 5).

Cy­clists should also cop a $1000 fine if they don’t ride in sin­gle file, or “In­dian file” as it used to be called. It was some­thing drummed into us since pri­mary school and was also on the back of our ex­er­cise books.

Try­ing to leave a 1m gap be­tween cy­clists and cars will be im­pos­si­ble when cy­clists are two, three or four abreast. Some take up the en­tire lane. And they won­der why driv­ers get cranky.

Un­less they have ap­pro­pri­ate signs or an es­cort ve­hi­cle, they are not in a race. Some cy­clists are their own worst en­emy at times.

Yet an­other “rule” that’s not very well thought through. I can only wish the truck­ies the best of luck . ROB THOMP­SON Bev­er­ley
