Motorists must exercise more vigilance and show more respect to cyclists and other road users, says president of the Barbados Cycling Union (BCU) Charles Lynch.

He was making the plea days after former cricketer and coach Ezra Moseley lost his life in a motor accident while cycling last Saturday morning.

A 19-year-old cyclist, Aaron Roberts, died in late December after a collision on Independence Day and 45-year-old Vincent Alleyne succumbed to his injuries after being struck on his bicycle on St Stephen’s Hill in early September.

Citing the increasing number of traffic collisions and road fatalities involving cyclists, Lynch said it was time enough motorists saw cyclists and pedestrians as fellow road users and showed more respect.  (NM)
