Sad indeed, glad that the guy has been stabilised.
I do agree that the red-light running is not exclusive to the owner/racer cyclists (aka ‘lycra brigade’). I saw a BB’er go straight through the red lights at Waterloo Bridge/The Strand this morning – a potentially suicidal manoevre. I also wonder whether there’s any correlation between speed and chances of (causing/being involved in) an accident. The guys who went straight over the crossing last night were going so fast that they would have had to brake heavily to stop. It was easier for them to carry straight on. The Boris Bikes are so heavy that they prevent ‘speeding’ on most roads and therefore are possibly safer??
