31 Oct 2012 Safe Cycling: Silent Protest in Kalk Bay/ St James
Posted at 11:56 AM in News
The Pedal Power Association arranged a silent protest for deceased bicycle commuter Suviytlea Same who was killed on route to work last Wednesday in St James/Muizenberg.
The protest was well attended by among others MEC Dr Ivan Meyer who stressed the importance of cycling and road safety.
The Association is on a major drive to increase awareness and ensure that motorists adhere to the recommended best practice of a 1.5m berth when passing a cyclist due to become law at the end of the year. The message is a clear and simple one; “Cyclists stay alive at 1.5”.
