We’re all pedestrians
ONCE again Paul Hepworth stakes a claim for special consideration for cyclists vis-a-vis the possible pedestrianisation of Fossgate (The Press, September 6).
Perhaps such consideration might be given when cyclists observe traffic regulation orders and the rules of the road in the HIghway Code; that is, when, for example, they do not cycle in foot-streets, do not cycle the wrong way in one-way streets, do not cycle on footways, fail to observe red lights at traffic signals, show lights after dark, etc, etc.
No matter by what means of transport we use, at some stage in every journey we all become pedestrians and it is right that in this capacity we should have most priority.
