Many police forces throughout the UK are trying to highlight the dangers to drivers overtaking cyclists without leaving sufficient space for their vehicles to pass safely. Our own Avon and Somerset Constabulary have an initial called Report a near miss where we can do exactly that; for further information click here
Taunton Area Cycling Campaign is a voluntary group run by local residents with 500 members. Our aim is safer, better and more cycling in the Taunton Area. We are campaigning on a number of key areas:
integration into major new developments such as the North Taunton Development, Coal Orchard and Firepool;
improving design standards so that road and cycling infrastructure is designed in a way that it more user friendly;
seeking more investment, in the short term through Somerset County Council’s Small Improvement Scheme programme. We are seeking to work with the local authorities for a major scheme funding bid, in line with Taunton Garden Town aspirations;
promotion and updating the Taunton cycling and walking map.
We believe that, if you cycle in Taunton, you help create a BETTER environment, save time by making QUICKER journeys and you will be FITTER.
