Sign cycle safety petition, urges Jon Snow

CTC president calls on public to make politicians debate cycling

Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow is urging the public to sign a petition calling for UK politicians to adopt 18 recommendations to make city streets safer for bike riding.

The Get Britain Cycling report, published in April, suggests incorporating cycling infrastructure into road design, allowing for extra funding for bike lanes and bridges, taking action on lorry danger and encouraging strong leadership to ensure cycling remains a government priority.

So far, about 60,000 people have signed the petition, launched on 23 April. Snow, president of the CTC, said: “We need 100,000 signatures to make sure it gets a hearing in parliament. The good news is we’re over halfway there.”
