We must drive less, say cycling advocates
Cycling advocates say  the new Road to Zero campaign has the right vision and a good strategy, but there's a gap.
"Human mistakes are always possible, but no one should be killed or seriously injured as a result," said Patrick Morgan, from Cycling Action Network.
"The Road to Zero strategy includes safer speeds, vehicles, roads, and driving and riding."
"But there's a gap. It should also have a goal for less driving. Unless we reduce VKT (vehicle km travelled) we can't achieve our safety and carbon goals."
"We need a plan to get people out of cars, and onto public transport, cycling, scooting and walking. We also must reduce the need to travel, so we can cut risk and harm on our streets."
