Cycle-trained drivers to get insurance cuts?
One-off training is meaningless. After all, they all passed their driving test and it hasn’t done many of them any good. Robert Massimo Baldi
A bit discriminatory against those who for some reason, such as disability, cannot ride a bicycle. Nadia Lewis
I think the initiative partly comes from the statistical findings that suggest cyclists make safer drivers. And insurance is based entirely around statistics. Nothing discriminatory about it, no one has to do it, and the vast majority won’t — how many do advanced driver training? Paul Herron Great idea — most people who drive cars are not regular cyclists, so at least some idea of the vulnerability of other road users is a step in the right direction. Julian Howell
It’s not too dissimilar to Transport for London’s scheme of asking cyclists to sit in the cab of a lorry to see the blind spots. Never mind the fact that lorries needn’t have blind spots. But if it saves a cyclist's life, then it’s worth it. Jerry Saunders
Things are slowly starting to move in the right direction. I hope this comes to pass. One step closer to the law of presumed liability. Duncan Pringle
