A Glasgow-based cycling charity has called for strict analysis of cyclist accident locations to properly protect cyclists in the city.
CTC Glasgow has urged the Council to make 20mph speed limits the standard speed limit in many areas of Greater Glasgow. The organisation has also called for the Council to pay particular attention to arterial roads and roundabouts that are shown to have significantly higher than average numbers of cyclist and pedestrian casualties.
By having an in-depth analysis of where accidents occur, the charity believes that more road traffic accidents could be prevented. While the city centre of Glasgow is expected to introduce 20mph zones in the near future, it is hoped that the success of such a policy could lead to a reduction in the number of cycling accidents.
