Very serious letter writing business
I am sorry to hear Philip Dunne (Letters, December 11-12) has been inconvenienced by caring for someone hurt by a cyclist. However passing the buck of cyclist safety onto cyclists only must stop. Calls for high-visibility vests are ridiculous. When I ride to the shops or to work I am not in a race. I don’t need a vest with an identifying number. I am happy to carry identification or register my bike, but I am not happy to absolve drivers of responsibility for their lack of attention.
I do come off as rather grumpy but the idea that it’s my own fault if I get hit by cars because I’m not dressed up like a fluoro Christmas tree will do that to a girl. That and serious letter writing before my morning coffee.
