LETTER: Who would be liable in smash?

The argument about speeding cyclists is that many go along prom everyday at speed, and as we all know it only takes a second for an accident to occur.

Those in favour say they will only be going at walking pace, so why ride a bike when you can walk as fast? A safety audit would say that a pedestrian would receive very bad injuries if struck by someone of say 15 stone or more on a bike – who will be liable?

The seafront prom should be left as it was designed for a place for young and old to walk and play in total relaxation without constantly looking for dangers,and don’t forget skaters, skateboarders,dogs running loose, joggers etc.

Why ruin one constant that Eastbourne has always had a seafront to admire and be at peace with.
