Jo Haylen moves that this House:
- Notes the significant contribution cyclists make each and every day to reducing congestion and carbon emissions and improving public health.
- Welcomes the "metre matters" rule as a positive step in improving cyclist safety.
- Considers that the other measures announced in the Government's "Go Together" cycling package are not evidence based, are unnecessarily punitive and will discourage the growth in cycling.
- Notes that the most effective way of promoting cyclist safety is to encourage a greater number of cyclists by building separated cycleways and cycling infrastructure.
- Calls on the Government to abandon fine increases and the need for cyclists to carry some identity and introduce evidence-based policy to promote and encourage cycling as a healthy and environmentally friendly mode of transport.
