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.
