Letter to media 02/11/2016

Here's a letter to the editor, published on 02 November 2016 ...

I respond to Tia Cherry's letter (Eastern Courier Messenger, 19 October) regarding cyclists and hi-vis vests. I agree that cyclists should be encouraged to be highly visible. It is their choice and responsibility. The State Government has announced that it will not enforce mandatory hi-vis vests. No Council can mandate hi-vis vests. I urge all cyclists to wear a vest, especially in bad weather. Be seen and be safe.
