Dangerous cycling laws delayed in UK as general election called

The British government’s planned “dangerous cycling” law will now not happen, due to the general election, announced on Wednesday.  

Last week, an amendment to the Criminal Justice Bill aiming to introduce the offence of “causing death by dangerous, careless or inconsiderate cycling” was accepted by the government. However, with Parliament being dissolved next Thursday, there will now not be enough time for it to pass through the House of Lords and into law.
