“Why are car drivers penalized for accidents, but not cyclists?”

I HAVE just read the letter in Argus on Thursday (July 21st) about cyclists, written by an unnamed person.

Most people, especially motorists, know that cyclists have their own laws.

They have no insurance, don’t pay a road license and don’t seem to know the Highway Code exists.

Two weeks ago I was early for my dentist appointment at Fiveways, Ditchling Road.

Since it was such a hot day, I sat at the bus stop until my appointment was due.

I counted seven cyclists going through the traffic lights. Six of them were dressed all in black and rode black bikes. Very difficult to see, especially in low light or at night. Two of them rode side by side and talked.

Cyclist number seven was the only one wearing high visibility clothing and was easily seen. However, he drove straight through the red light and shot past me at considerable speed.

According to the new version of the Road Traffic Act, we drivers should be considerate of cyclists when driving.

We have to be road legal, have insurance and have an MOT. In an accident, we could lose our driver’s license. If the cyclists have an accident, what exactly do they lose???

They use the roads, so they should obey all the rules and regulations that apply to motorists.
