Responsible cycling

While I support initiatives to reduce the pollution in London. I am finding that life is becoming increasingly more dangerous for me as a pedestrian with the steep increase in those cycling. Cyclists in London now rule the road. And yet they are completely unregulated – a cyclist doesn’t need to have any training, no insurance, no helmet and no high vis clothes. A significant number have absolutely NO consideration for; traffic lights, the speed at which they are travelling, pedestrians or cars.  Some cyclists often weave in and out of the traffic – mount the pavement, ride at speed through parks and shout and be abusive if you ask them to be careful. I don't necessarily think regulation is the answer but I would like TFL to start advertising to make cyclists more aware about the danger of this behaviours and for the police to take this more seriously.
