Anyway back to the "consultation" . Havin a consultation or havin a crack down, or are they doin both ? Seams odd like an odd way to encourage more active travel.
An entirely personal opinion, this is dog whistle politics aimed at the Tory party membership because Jess Norman the minster responsible for this is positioning for a shot at the leadership when May goes. This is a pander to the anti cycling Daily Mail brigade who will pick the next Tory leader, a bit like Boris endless maneuvers.
It won't do any good for cycling and actually hasn't got anything to do with cycling.
