Bikes are road vehicles, give them number plates
14 September, 2018
• THE government’s proposal to render compulsory the wearing of cycle helmets might also be an opportunity to introduce number plates as a way of reducing abusive cycling.
Number plates can easily be added to the backs of helmets. After all, many helmets already display symbols, adverts and other information.
The bicycle is a road vehicle just like others and ought therefore to be numbered like them. Cyclists would think twice about riding anti-socially if they know they could be easily identified.
