Ed­u­ca­tion key

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

AS a sea­soned cy­clist, I agree with Vikeonabike, par­tic­u­larly on the ed­u­ca­tion point front, for those on two and four wheels. Cy­clists cer­tainly need to be prop­erly equipped in terms of road craft to keep them­selves safe. As it stands, I see peo­ple en­dan­ger­ing them­selves and each other on a daily ba­sis (no­tice how I said peo­ple, not cy­clists and mo­torists :-) Be safe ev­ery­one, what­ever your cho­sen mode of trans­port. Fur­ther to that point about ed­u­ca­tion, I think that most of my near-misses are caused by lack of con­cen­tra­tion and aware­ness, and only a few are from con­scious de­ci­sions to make a risky ma­noeu­vre. Im­prov­ing con­cen­tra­tion by all road users would prob­a­bly make a big dif­fer­ence.
