A big rise in the number of people cycling in towns and cities across the UK is leading to rising tension between drivers, pedestrians and those on two wheels, according to a BBC News report.
Recent figures from Transport for London show there has been a 91% jump in cycle use across the city since 2000.
On 8 July cyclist Jason Howard was fined £2,200 following the death of a pedestrian he collided with in Buckingham. 17-year-old Rhiannon Bennett hit her head on the pavement and later died.
Following the court case, Ms Bennett's father branded the sentence 'laughable' while her mother said the law had let them down.
A policeman involved in the case said the law which allowed Howard to escape a prison term, as he was only charged with dangerous cycling, may need to be re-examined.
But the Crown Prosecution Service defended the lesser charge, as opposed to manslaughter, saying it was the 'appropriate' course of action.
Martin Cook, West Sussex RSO, said growing numbers of bikes on the roads had sparked 'very strong feelings' among people. "There are groups who feel there should be a lot more engineering to facilitate for cyclists and others who feel cyclists shouldn't be on the road," he said. "It's about trying to find the common ground with the two."
