Lambeth Cyclists say stop at red

At the end of February Lambeth Cyclists supported parents and pupils of Reay Primary School in Stockwell to campaign against cyclists failing to stop at red lights. We joined with children from the school, local Police, Borough Councillors and MP Kate Hoey to highlight the issue which endangers school children and other pedestrians crossing the road.

The story was covered extensively by the South London Press, BBC News website, the Evening Standard, the Independent and the Guardian and we were quoted adding our support to the school’s protest and emphasising the importance of cycle training for everyone as a means of instilling the importance of complying with road traffic laws and minimising the risk to other more vulnerable road users. We hope to have a continuing dialogue with the Police about this issue and others such as advanced stop line enforcement which have an impact on cyclists in the borough.
