Help fix our failing road traffic laws

Cycling UK is calling on the Government to fix our failing traffic laws by amending the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, which is currently passing through Parliament but we need your help.

Our new report, Five Flaws: Failing Laws, highlights five laws which could be changed to ensure our road justice system takes dangerous drivers off the roads, and makes our roads safer for everyone.

As well as calling for a full review of traffic offences, the proposals include changes which would:

  • Stop drivers routinely avoiding a driving ban after accruing 12 penalty points by claiming it would cause them 'exceptional hardship'.
  • Create a new offence for serious hit and runs, where a driver knows or ought to know someone has been seriously or fatally injured.

We need MPs from across Parliament to back these proposals to make them into law - and you can help, by asking your MP to write to the Minister.

Just fill in your details below, and you'll be taken to an editable email you can use to contact your MP.

If you've already written to your MP about this, please indicate this in the drop down below, and you'll be taken to a follow up letter.
