To mark the first anniversary of the tragic death of cyclist Rob Jefferies, British Cycling and Cycling Weekly are calling for urgent action to be taken by the government to make the justice system fairer for cyclists and other road users who are hurt or seriously injured on the country's roads.

With the support of Cycling Weekly and other cycling and road safety organisations, British Cycling is writing to Ken Clarke at the Ministry of Justice, Theresa May at the Home Office, and Justine Greening at the Department for Transport asking for a meeting to agree a plan of action that will give cyclists and all road users confidence that the justice system is playing the role it should to support and protect them.
