Traffic Wales has responded to complaints about a tweet suggesting cyclists don’t ride at night to explain it meant to say “without lights”.
It’d sent out a tweet from its Traffic Wales South account saying “what are safe tips for being a safe bicyclist? Remember to wear a properly fitted helmet, adjust your bicycle to fit, see and be seen, watch for and avoid road hazards and avoid riding at night”.
Cycling groups complained about the tweet and it was then deleted and a new tweet was issued saying, “We sincerely apologise for this previous tweet. We intended to say please avoid cycling at night without lights, high vis etc. We want to encourage all everyone to access our network safely by sharing safety advice that is useful for all road users.”
