Are weapons, perhaps they should be banned from the roads? That would eliminate all the risk of harm to cyclists. Add to that bridges for cyclists are cheaper to build (although still very expensive see Sunlive 27/9/2017 @ 12.12pm article). But that could be acceptable if one did not need also to build a road for cars also?
