It’s like a jungle out there for bike riders. Bike riders are vulnerable on roads without separated cycle-ways. Cyclist injuries and fatalities have increased in NSW in the past 12 months.
To Gladys Berejiklian, NSW Premier,
I note that cyclist injuries and fatalities have increased in NSW in the past 12 months and that cyclists are vulnerable on roads without cycle-ways.
Cycling helps reduce traffic congestion and keep our air clean and our bodies healthy.
I support cycle safe communities and the right of cyclists to use the roads and to be safe.
I ask that you support cyclist safety in our community by:
- ensuring that local councils and state government agencies are adequately funded to devise, monitor and enforce regulations which ensure cyclists' safety
- providing adequate funding to develop more separated cycle paths in our community
