New powers for councils to keep cyclists safe

New powers for councils to keep cyclists safe back to News

Local authorities in England are being granted new powers to help make cycling journeys safer. From 22 June new laws come into force to allow CCTV to be used to issue penalty charge notices to drivers who park or load illegally in mandatory cycle lanes, putting cyclists at risk of a serious accident.

Cars parked on cycle lanes pose problems for cyclists, often forcing them into the flow of traffic. With approved camera devices, it will be easier for those local authorities with civil parking enforcement powers to take action against cars illegally parked on mandatory cycle lanes, allowing cyclists to complete their journeys without deviating from their path.
