Action must be taken 'now and quickly' over cycle lanes

Philippine De Gerin-Ricard's mother, Anne Boudet du Mochet, pleaded for road safety for cyclists in London to be tackled quickly:

The problem with cycle lanes here in London is not a new problem. Things have been asked by cyclists - if anything had been done, it has not been helpful to cyclists.

I have heard the clothing that cyclists wear and what Philippine should have been wearing was discussed here. What needs to be discussed is the provisions of lanes for cyclists. Action needs to be taken.

Today it is my family who is living in this situation and it is also the driver's family too. Significant action must be taken now and quickly.
