Own the lane

December 21st, 2011 | Posted by wheeliefine in law

In my court case about cyclists’ right to use the lane like any other road user (occupying it, in the centre, when it would be dangerous for other vehicles to overtake), the prosecution has collapsed (it will ‘offer no evidence’) even before tomorrow’s hearing starts.

While this means we ‘win’ the case, it robs us of the chance to show publicly that the Road Users’ Code is out of line with modern thinking on this issue. And we had a very solid case. But at least now if anyone else is similarly charged, there is a legal defence ready to roll. Seriously – make a mental note and tell them to drop us a line, here at info@hkcyclingalliance.org
