HC Deb 24 February 1986 vol 92 c457W
21. Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if his Department has made any studies into the road safety factor of cyclists wearing personal radios or cassette players.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The Transport Road and Research Laboratory is conducting a hospital-based study of cycling accidents. If the use of radio and cassette players represents a significant factor in such accidents, this should become clear from the results of the study.
