Re: Fair enough, but...
We do. It's very old legislation, but it exists and it's comes with extremely significant sentences.
Just to be clear, though, cyclists can cause lethal injuries, but statistically, it's a very small problem. More pedestrains are killed every year by cars mounting the pavement and running into them than my cyclists at all (about 100 to >10).
In fact, it's likely that the dust from car brakes cause more deaths per annum through respiratory disease than cyclists.
In short, nutter cyclists are anti-social. Car drivers kill people in industrial numbers.
