WITH regard to the new cycle lanes which have been installed, while I think it is a great idea for the city, I do have one primary concern.

I really think cyclists should have to have some sort of insurance.

Many accidents on our roads are caused by cyclists.

As car drivers and motorcycle riders have to have insurance by law, surely cyclists should have same in order to protect themselves as well as all of the other people who are regularly on the roads.

I would be extremely interested to see what other people think about this matter.
