A bylaw; To enforce cyclist's use cycle lanes where provided at all times.

Petition details

The overseas experience shows cyclist are required to use cycle lanes where provided and is embedded in their Road Code. A bylaw therefore will ensure compliance as the need to share the road as per the Land Transport Act (see definition of a road) no longer applies.
