One of the main reasons why more people do not ride is because they are afraid of being injured or killed by a motorised vehicle. It is a simple as that.
This is why the Pedal Power Association is calling for improvements to be made to the K53 Manual and Driving Licence Test to make bicycle awareness a core part of driver training and testing, with emphasis on how much space to give cyclists, how to safely interact with cyclists at intersections, and how to safely overtake cyclists. Add your voice to their call by SIGNING the Petition online on Ride Your City.
