There are more and more people cycling in Vancouver. Public money is being wasted on these people, who are little better than welfare scroungers. Also they hold up cars. Something should be done.
Enough is enough. It’s high time cyclists enjoyed the full rights of the road – including the right to obtain a licence, buy plates and insurance, and be subject to more frequent traffic violation tickets.
The template for regulating cyclists is already in place. Commercial cyclists, such as couriers, must pass a written test and purchase a licence plate.
