End cycling deaths in Oxford

This petition had 3,391 supporters

On the 9th May, another exceptional student of the University of Oxford was killed cycling on the dangerous roads of Oxford.

The University is the dominant force in this city and gives a huge amount to it. It is in a strong position to ask for changes. And only through material changes can we prevent the loss of yet another life.

We are asking for:

1.     No private cars or motorbikes within the area of town bounded by central University and college property

2.    Clearly marked and wide cycle lanes on all major roads throughout the Oxford area

3.     Physical barriers, such as kerbs, between cycle and vehicle lanes

There should never be a situation where one individual’s convenience or mistakes are allowed to compromise the life of another.

 We additionally ask for:

 4.    Greater investment and publicity for cycle safety courses
