The majority of people – some 94% – back greater penalties for bicycle, e-bike and e-scooter riders who flout road laws, new research by Venson Automotive Solutions suggests. The former transport secretary, Grant Shapps, recently proposed a Whitehall review of how cyclists who break the law should be tracked and prosecuted. Initial ideas put forward to facilitate this include insurance cover for riders and registration plates for bikes, and it appears from the latest research by Venson Automotive Solutions, that the UK public are in favour. Almost two-thirds (62%) of those surveyed agreed that riders of bicycles, e-bikes and e-scooters should have insurance cover and nearly half (49%) believe these modes of transport should carry registration plates.
