Transport Committee joins debate over cycle safety

The House of Commons Transport Committee will hear evidence on cycle safety on December 2. The committee's chairman Louise Ellman said:

"Many of these casualties involve large vehicles, especially HGVs, and there is now debate about whether they should be banned from city centres at peak times. This will have consequences for businesses which need to be assessed.

"There is also debate about the behaviour of drivers and cyclists and whether more can be done to promote compliance with the law."

The committee will also examine the safety of London's Cycle Superhighways Credit: Press Association
