Licensing bicyclists makes sense

Re: Cyclist licensing would enhance safety (Letters, Sept. 7)

Where do cyclists get off using highways, byways, alleyways, sidewalks without paying a penny? Licensed drivers pay a hefty fee to use the roads and so they should.

Cyclists should write a test on road rules, then they know the ones they break. This includes riding two or three abreast, which they do all too often.

Cyclists should pay a minimum of $100 per year licence fee and be held accountable, just like licensed drivers.
