Jo Haylen moves that this House:

  1. Notes the significant contribution cyclists make each and every day to reducing congestion and carbon emissions and improving public health.
  2. Welcomes the "metre matters" rule as a positive step in improving cyclist safety.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
