The driver of the vehicle,a 26-year-old who was taken to court for knocking down a cyclist and who cannot be named for legal reasons, said it was wrong to penalise those who kill or injure a cyclist in what could be seen as unfortunate accidents.

"I don't think it's fair because I wasn't driving dangerously, I wasn't driving erratically," he said. "I just failed to see someone who was on the road."

Meanwhile, a group of MPs in London is calling for a cycling budget of £10 per person by 2020 to improve road safety.

The Transport Select Committee says spending is currently estimated at £2 per head.

"Cyclists have told us the dangers they face every day from a lack of cycling infrastructure, poorly-designed junctions and aggressive driving," said committee chair Louise Ellman.

"Investing in cycling will make the roads safer for all users and encourage more people to cycle and walk."
