    What was the cyclist doing in the road? Isn't there a cycle path there?

    Does he pay road tax and did he have a helmet, lights and bell?

    Cyclists are a menace to society. No better than those pesky skateboarders!
    Cycling in the road , why not, no legal requirement to use cycle path and we don't know the exact position of the collision . After all that is posted about cyclist and road tax you must know by now that road tax was abolished in 1937. There is car tax which is based on age or emissions, a 1971 Rolls Royce pays the same " road tax " as a cycle, nothing . Helmet not a legal requirement, lights was it dark and I am sure the bus driver would have heard a bell"
