Last year the Government announced a cycle safety review consisting of two phases. The first part of the review considers the case for creating a new offence equivalent to causing death or serious injury by careless or dangerous driving, to help protect both cyclists and pedestrians. This is expected to report early this year.

The second phase will be a wider consultation on road safety issues relating to cycling. The Department has undertaken informal consultations with a range of stakeholders, and intends to issue a formal consultation document shortly.
