Cycling fatalities triple

From The Panel, 4:11 pm on 12 December 2017

Cyclist deaths are up more than three times on last year. 18 cyclists have died so far on our roads, with three weeks of the year left. Only 5 people died in 2016, 6 in 2015. The road toll is up for drivers and motorbike riders too as well as pedestrians. For cyclists, it's mostly men over 40. We ask the panellists if the push back against cycleways is valid and what can be done to keep our roads safer.
