Ban the Bakfiet

Section:

Dangerous bicycles with cargo boxes that carry children should be banned

With the current furore regarding relations between cyclists and motorists in London, one particular type of bicycle that has come to public attention is the “cargo bike”.

 

Cargo bikes are not suited to the streets of London
Cargo bikes are not suited to the streets of London

Essentially bikes with big boxes on the front, cargo bikes are used to carry young children and are extremely perilous. Why any parent would choose to risk the lives of their offspring by placing them in an unsafe box is beyond us. Frankly, those that do choose to use these contraptions plainly have less than half a brain. Boris Johnson should ban Bakfiets from the streets of London.

    1. Who wrote this PC twaddle? Soon we will be wearing crash helmets to walk along the street. Irrespective of whether it is safe or not do we need the ‘state’ to dictate to us what we can or can’t do?

    2. These conveyances are built for countries such as the Netherlands, where drivers and cyclists have many years of peacefully sharing space. London is now full of dangerous foreigners….legal and illegal, and most have either no UK driving licences or fake ones. The two comments above are just fatuous. You have only to note the number of mortalities in C. London not to understand the risks involved in transporting children in these contraptions ,

    3. Safety and cyclists are a hot potato topic in Britain. Nick Clegg and Boris Johnson hope to solve this thorny issue by means of mathematical operations and geometric constructions. The politicians believe that their approaches to problem solving are scientific and dynamic. Esra Siebra lacked the agility of intellect and invention, he was not as smart as Clegg and Johnson.
      Esra Siebra rode his bicycle without reflectors, mudguards and doggy brakes. Esra was stopped by a Traffic Policeman, the officer gave him a severe reprimand, and also gave him the opportunity to explain himself.
      Esra Siebra’s defence was that he was unaware that his mode of transport was not roadworthy.
      The Officer replied, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse, sir”
      Esra replied “On the contrary, “I feel very safe, I cycle with God, he is always with me”
      The officer said, ” In that case, I will also have to formally charge you under The Road Traffic Act, for carrying a passenger.

    4. how could anyone say that there contraptions are safe ?? a vehicle hittting you and your kids at 20mph will do serious damage. carry my kids in one of these on the open road ?? no chance !!
