Petition Make it obligatory to have a bell attached to any bicycle using the cycle paths.
The cycle path from St Helier to St Aubin can be a busy and dangerous thoroughfare. Many cyclists insist on traveling at speed risking collisions with fellow cyclists and unaware pedestrians. There have already been cases of life changing injuries.
The cycle paths can be a dangerous mix of cyclists and pedestrians. There are many corners and turns which obscure straight line vision for both users. Many cyclists insist on traveling at speed along the path with little chance of stopping should an unaware child or adult cross their path.
Ideally, The States should encourage use of bells by providing them, free of charge for a one or two month period. After that, no bell; no cycle path - and a fine!
There have been enough near misses and injuries.
