Councillors should show more concern for cyclists

Written by Matt Fisher on .

Having read your article Marlborough town council puts the brakes on Transition initiative to make it cycle friendly, I just have to wonder how out of touch some of 'our' Councillors appear to be.

Worried about damage to cars from bikes being removed from bike racks? How about being worried about the safety of cyclists (and yes, we're car drivers too, and tax payers) regularly cut-up by cars diving into or out of parking spaces on the high street or regularly driving at 40mph+ in residential areas?

Those Councillors who prioritise the convenience of motorists over the safety of all road users do not represent my views.
