Safety in Numbers
CTC proposes a "New Vision for Cycling": Cycling gets safer the more cyclists there are.
The UK’s National Cyclists’ Organisation - CTC' has recently launched its
Safety in Numbers campaign which shows that that the more people cycle, the safer it is for each individual cyclist. Because:
- Drivers are more aware of cyclists
- Drivers are more likely to be cyclists themselves
- There is greater political will to improve cycling conditions
CTC explains thatThe Government has already adopted a target to halve the risks of cycling in its draft Road Safety Strategy, A Safer Way; but CTC believes thatthe best way to achieve this is is to double the levels of cycling. CTC claims that this would benefit our streets, our health, our communities and the environment, as well as improving safety for all road users.
