The DfT has updated its response to a petition calling for a public awareness campaign to address driver aggression towards cyclists. While a paragraph has been added to the top to say the DfT “doesn’t consider that a campaign along the lines specifically requested by this petition is necessary”, it does now say that the departments THINK! campaign will be developing a behavioural change campaign.
The petition, started by Helen-Louise Smith, said: “The attitude that cyclists should not be on the roads needs to end.”
It called for motorists to be educated about ‘dangerous, inappropriate and aggressive behaviours that can lead to the injury and even death of cyclists.’
