The government and the police should promote bicycle transportation and stop their pursuit of cyclists.
Road safety is important, but there are many ways to achieve it.
For example, instead of issuing tickets, formal notices could be a more pleasant way to promote safety and vigilance on the road.
Other possible solutions would be to implement more bicycle paths or reserved lanes for cyclists on the road, better signage and a publicity campaign aimed at bicycle safety.
Tickets, demerit points and banning cyclists in certain areas could encourage citizens to take their car, a taxi or public transit.
Let’s encourage cycling and active transportation. Let’s stop issuing tickets to those who do their part for the environment, health, and the city.
