They want to close roads to bikes on the weekend? Isn't that restricting freedom of movement? Plus that won't do anything to reduce casualties, it'll just shove them elsewhere and probably increase them as people act just as silly on roads they don't know.
I ride sensibly to get from A to B. If someone told me I couldn't go somewhere based on my mode of transport it'd be the same as saying you can't go somewhere based on your chosen religion and so on. For example : "you're a Muslim and they've been blowing things up and hurting themselves and other people so you can't go down there". It'd cause an outcry.
Yes I understand that they want to reduce casualties on the main roads but you might as well just ban personal transport and confine everyone to buses, etc if you're going to impose restrictions on personal freedoms. I HATE these unelected bastards with no democratic legitimacy at all handing down rules and regulations.
There should be restrictions to stop mobility scooters, bicycles and 50ccs going on motorways for safety's sake because they are unsuitable vehicles and can in no way be driven safely in that setting. There should be restrictions to stop pedestrians legally being allowed to cross when there's a crossing nearby. That's kind of where the law's impingement on your freedom to drive / ride what you want where you want on the public highway should end.
These facist EU bastards can shove their ideas up their collective shitty cunt. The commission is however run by a former Maoist so it's just going to become less democratic and just based on what a bunch of people who see themselves as "the elite" think is good for us. They should be shot at dawn alongside the traitors who lied and took us into this political union in the first place.
EDITED: to put in the Muslim part.
