Ringing time on the bicycle bell
The requirement for all new bikes to be fitted with a bell is likely to be scrapped as part of the Government’s ‘Red Tape Challenge’ which is seeking to remove any unnecessary, burdensome and overcomplicated regulation (road.cc).
The requirement to fit a bell at point of sale, or include it within the packaging, was not accompanied by a rule stipulating that a bicycle has to have a bell fitted when on the road, and many are simply discarded by owners as soon as they get their new bike, according to road.cc.
Other cycling issues that have been reviewed include shaking up regulations relating to racing on the highway and simplifying regulations relating to cycle tracks.
