Government to look at extending dangerous driving offence to cyclists
Theresa May says transport secretary will look at whether law needs to be changed after case in which woman died in London
The government is to examine whether the offence of dangerous driving should be extended to cyclists after a case in which a woman died after being struck by a rider whose bike had no front brake.
Speaking at prime minister’s questions, Theresa May said the transport secretary, Chris Grayling, would look at whether there was a need for a law change after the death of Kim Briggs.
Now, do you take that as to protect people on bikes (2%) from people in vehicles (97%) or to prosecute them? Which will improve safety more https://t.co/ED66vd12nr
