Viewpoint: Why are drivers blind to cyclists on the road?
One angry and concerned Grimsby cyclist has his letter published in today’s Grimsby Telegraph viewpoint, after a number of incidents involving motorists. Here is a section of the letter, you can read it in full in today’s Telegraph...and please let us know what you think by adding your comments on the end of this – are the drivers or the cyclists at fault?
“Had it been a young school kid or an elderly person in those situations, they would either have been in hospital now or on a slab in the morgue, with grieving relatives trying to come to terms with how they had lost their loved one.
I know there is a case for not all cyclists being angels, and if anyone cycles in the dark wearing dark clothing with no lights on their bike, I have no sympathy for them if they get hit. But we’re not all like that and there are no excuses for drivers labelling us as second-class citizens on the road, especially when we abide by the rules.
For God’s sake, if you’re driving any vehicle, slow down, pay attention to what is around you on the roads and give other road users the respect they deserve – before it’s too late!
