Almost 70 % of people in Britain would support greater cycling route provisions in their local area, results of a YouGov survey show.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) revealed these figures at the start of their Family Safety Week.
The poll involved 2,169 people participating online. 58% of them said they never cycle.
Nazan Fennell, leading the Live in Hope campaign in Birmingham has urged families to demand for safer cycling infrastructure in the city:
“After Hope’s accident I realised that things could be done to prevent these fatalities. We need to make our roads safer for vulnerable users”
RoSPa launched the campaign at the Queensbridge school, where Hope was a pupil, and a national cycling survey to collect data from cyclists, non-cyclists and would-have-been cyclist.

UPDATE: This post has been updated, after it was pointed out to us that 15% of the respondents of the poll said their local roads are ‘very’ unsafe.
