A simple pledge for all club members.
All Leeds & Bradford Triathlon Club members pledge to stop at red traffic lights when cycling.
By doing so we hope to:
- Improve our own safety
- Improve the safety of others
- Gain the respect of motorists and pedestrians
Cyclists who ignore red traffic lights are forgetting their responsibilities as road users. The same rules that apply to cars apply to cyclists, so we should stop at red traffic lights. Jumping red lights is illegal and irresponsible. Not only does it diminish the respect of cyclists in the eyes of other road users, it puts you and other road users at unnecessary risk of injury.
We ask all our members to be part of this pledge. This is something we strongly believe in. If you do not agree with the pledge then you may wish to consider if Leeds & Bradford Triathlon Club is the club for you.
