Thank you so much for bringing this shocking revelation the forum's attention!! A quick google brought this page up :
http://www.factoryoutletscooters.co....lity-scooters/

It's clear that something must be done with these reckless individuals!!

First cement lorries, now mobility scooters I can't wait to see what examples you bring up next.

Re: [Update] Cyclist convicted of "wanton and furious driving"

I see the way forward - we ban all pedestrians and car/van/lorry/milk float/mobility scooter drivers from the streets so that cyclists can roam free and only kill and injure themselves. I dare say that some of them will still find a way to blame other people though...

It's the only sensible option.

Yes, well cyclists are never to blame as we all know. Four year olds walking in pedestrian zones really ought to know better as should their parents. His head was probably full of all sorts of childish theme park nonsense and he wasn't paying full attention to road safety when that innocent cyclist hit him. Poor innocent young man on the bike, I dare say he's been traumatised by this and won't ever be able to cycle in a pedestrian zone again without feeling threatened by all those people walking around causing a hazard...

Re: [Update] Cyclist convicted of "wanton and furious driving"

Congratulations to the fat, Chris Froome wannabe cycling across the new Mersey Gateway bridge this morning. Apart from the fact that it's a motorway regulation road all the way across, all of the approach roads are too. It's this element of the lycra fraternity and the fixie hipsters who need a good kicking and locking up.

He's a cyclist, Laws of the road don't apply to him.

Oh do calm down Uncle Peter, you probably couldn't kick your way out of a wet Liverpool Echo

Now, as far as I can tell one of the main objectives of the project was to encourage the increased use of cycling and walking - did this not come about? If not, why not as the project is government (taxpayer) funded and cyclists/pedestrians pay taxes you know.

Re: [Update] Cyclist convicted of "wanton and furious driving"

The old bridge is closed for refurbishment but still open for cycle and foot traffic. While it’s now a relatively safe and traffic free route over the river the roads it connects to, like most of the roads in this country are not suitable enough for cars and cycles to co-exist safely.

So, despite it being a stated 'main objective' to encourage increased cycling and walking, there is no provision to achieve this within the constructed new bridge?

Don't you think that it might have been an idea to incorporate a cycle/walk way so that everyone who has contributed toward the cost of the project could enjoy the same benefits as motorists?

I hope local cyclists regularly disrupt traffic flow by way of protest .
