Kids on Bikes

Monday 16 July 2018

I’ve asked the minister to review the rules which force children between 12 and 16 to ride on the road. The rule applies even on heavy arterial roads with fast moving traffic and puts young people who are not experienced riders in conflict cars. It also has ridiculous anomalies which mean a 12 year old must ride on the road while their parent and younger sibling can ride on the footpath. New South Wales is the only state other than Victoria with this rule. I will follow up again about the outcome of the promised Centre for Road Safety review, see HERE.
