The RAA are calling on local cyclists to put safety first on the roads, and for drivers to be aware of cyclists as the wet weather returns.
Over 7,500 offences by SA cyclists were recorded by police last year, with the number one offence being failing to wear a helmet, followed by riding at night without front or rear lights.
SAPOL figures show there were over 12 HUNDRED cyclist offences in the Yorke Mid-North district over 2021, the highest in regional SA, with fines totalling $91,228.
Senior Manager of Safety and Infrastructure with the RAA, Charles Mountain, says cyclists are vulnerable road users and should take every precaution to keep themselves safe from injury.
He says all road users should respect the road rules and each other to reduce trauma on the roads.
