Another Death in Manchester

It is time for the killing to stop.

As a society we do not tolerate deaths on construction sites, so why do we tolerate construction traffic killing people who are cycling?

This leaves me angry...

  1. The problem is that construction sites can avoid the problems by simply (and understandably) banning the vulnerable public.

    Obviously this is ridiculous and unfair in an open and public space, where the better option would be restricting the dangerous machinery. But as we know this often isn't the way it goes. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-26073797

    My thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim.

    I wonder if TfGM went ahead with their planned bike trains encouraging students to cycle in from Owens Park today...
