At yesterday’s Transport Question’s in the House of Commons, I asked the Minister about the implementation of the parts of the Traffic Management Act 2004 relating to motorists in cycle lanes.
Mr Ben Bradshaw (Exeter) (Lab): The Minister says that he takes cycling seriously, so when will the Government implement the relevant part of the Traffic Management Act 2004 to enable local authorities to enforce measures against law-breaking motorists who drive in cycle lanes and sit in advanced stop boxes for cyclists?
Norman Baker: My hon. Friend the Under-Secretary responded to that exact question on part 6 of the Traffic Management Act a moment ago. We have had representations about that; I am considering the matter seriously; we are in discussions with other Government Departments; and I hope to make a statement shortly.
