Cyclists ‘more dangerous’ than cars

Cllr Lawrence (‘Larry’) Abraham on cyclists:

"They're more dangerous than any car I've ever seen. They should be paying road tax and have insurance."

Mr Abraham's safety concerns were mirrored by councillor Alison Cook.

She said:
"Unfortunately, a lot of cyclists, as soon as they set off, see themselves as king of the road. And a small child hit by a bicycle could have a nasty experience.
