Compulsory Cycling Proficiency Test?
This morning a young woman cycling was killed by a left turning lorry. As a rule of thumb, being a cyclist in London, I don't undertake lorries or buses, especially bendy buses. But my rules are made up by me and many hours spent on the road avoiding accidents. So why shouldn't novice cyclists be told how to minimise the danger of the road, perhaps make it compulsory when purchasing a bike after all, you do when you buy a 50cc moped?
