Bicycles to get number plates
Bicycles will be fitted with number plates in a novel programme aimed at raising awareness of cycle safety.
The scheme has been launched in County Mayo (Ireland) where more than 1,000 schoolchildren will be issued with number plates for their bikes.
Noel Gibbons, road safety officer with Mayo County Council, hopes the number plates scheme will help raise awareness of cycle safety.
He says: “The purpose of the number plates is to raise awareness around cycle safety and encourage more people to take to the two wheel mode of transport rather than the four wheels.
“The number plates are made from a reflective material and hang under the bicycle saddle, increasing the chances of other road users to see the cyclist.
“The plates can be personalised to show the name of the cyclist, making them a great novelty gift for children.”
