Tony Parker’s letter (Echo, October 8) re the bike tracks has prompted me to write.
Are there any braver people on Earth? No, not the bikers, I mean the people who try to pass them on the road.
When I got my driver’s licence some 55 years ago, the rule was ‘proceed on the extreme left unless turning’ and it was against the law to drive in a manner dangerous to the public. Bike riders break both these rules all the time.
I would like to see people who ride outside the town limits licensed and made to register and display number plates. That way the average citizen would be able to report dangerous behaviour the same as you can with cars.
A registration fee could help fix the potholes.
