MMBCC look­ing at bike cam­eras

Mansfield Courier - - Courier Sport -

THE Mans­field Mt Buller Cy­cling Club (MMBCC) is look­ing into in­vest­ing in ‘Cy­cliq’ front and rear cam­eras for mem­bers to use to keep a record of close passes by mo­tor ve­hi­cles.

The cam­eras are also a tail light and head light.

The club is in­ter­ested in col­lect­ing this in­for­ma­tion on video so that there is good ev­i­dence of the event from which the po­lice could take ac­tion.

The Mans­field po­lice have been very pos­i­tive to­wards col­lect­ing this in­for­ma­tion and tak­ing steps to im­prove road safety.

Cur­rently, there is lit­tle ev­i­dence that the trial of driver ed­u­ca­tion is hav­ing an im­pact on im­prov­ing road safety for vul­ner­a­ble road users/cy­clists.

If the club has good ev­i­dence on what is hap­pen­ing in a re­gional area - es­pe­cially one that is be­ing heav­ily pro­moted to cy­clists – they hope to be able to in­flu­ence the dis­cus­sion by min­is­ters re­spon­si­ble for roads, com­mu­nity safety, tourism and health that more needs to be done.

SAFETY: The MMBCC is look­ing into the Cyclic cam­eras (pic­tured) which dou­ble as tail and head­lights.
