8 radical ways to protect cyclists

The BBC have posted an article proposing 8 different ways of protecting people on bikes.

How about strict liability laws and a better network of segregated cycle paths? Come on guys, they’ve shown us how it works on the Continent, it’s about time we stopped farting about with pie-in-the-sky ideas and got our act together.
