The Government has no plans to amend these Regulations. As part of the cycle safety review announced on 21 September, the Government will be considering whether the current legislation as to reckless cycling is appropriate, as well as different ways in which safety can be further improved between cyclists, pedestrians and motorists. If in the light of this Government considers that these Regulations require any amendment, any proposed changes will be consulted upon.
