Bus lane petition has been snubbed says MAG

The Motorcycle Action Group has hit out at the UK government, claiming it has snubbed the campaigning group’s petition on bus lane law reform. MAG has been fighting for a blanket approval of bike use in bus lanes across the country, rather than the current postcode lottery, where it is legal in some places, like central London, but unlawful in other areas.

MAG’s director of campaigns and political engagement, Colin Brown, said: “I was disappointed by the government response. It was as predictable as it was blinkered. They have shown that they are willing to demand action from local authorities on, say, cycling infrastructure. On the other hand, they say they can’t make similar demands in support of motorcyclists. Our members voted it as the top priority action they want the DfT to take.”
