I drive along West Coast Highway 6 days a week. As this highway is occupied by many big trailers and lorries, I worry about numerous cyclists who cycle along this highway everyday, often in groups. My questions to the authorities:
1) Why are the authorities and traffic police turning a blind eye to these cyclists? I thought it’s a regulation that cyclists are banned from cycling on expressways. At times, they even come in hugh groups occupying one whole lane, especially on weekends.
2) Motorised bicycles can be seen sometimes using this expressway, what isthe authorities’ take on this.
3) Trucks and lorries can be seen travelling faster than the stipulated 70km speed limit, and can be seen weaving in and out of traffic at times, not only they are dangerous to cyclists but to other road users as well
I do hope something can be done before somebody is hurt or even killed.
