HC Deb 25 July 1991 vol 195 c742W
Mr. Jessel

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what requirements apply to drivers of cars on giving way to persons riding bicycles across pedestrian crossings.

Mr. Chope

Drivers are required to give precedence to pedestrians, including those pushing bicycles, on a pedestrian crossing. No specific legal provisions apply in the case where the cyclist has not dismounted: both the driver and cyclist are required to show the same due consideration for other road users as on any other part of the carriageway.
