House of Lords peers criticised for 'propagating bike lane myths'
Cycling groups condemn evidence-free arguments that segregated lanes cause congestion and worsen pollution
Cycling organisations have condemned members of the House of Lords, including Prof Robert Winston, for propagating the “myth” that separated bike lanes cause congestion and worsen pollution, saying there is no evidence it happens.
Accusing the peers of making arguments based on “anecdote experienced through a taxi window,” the groups said that Winston, in particular, as a prominent scientist, should know better than to spread such misconceptions.
