This is ridiculous:
One of Britainâ€™s biggest engineering companies has banned staff from travelling on bicycles or motorbikes after declaring them too dangerous.
Jacobs Babtie advises local authorities on sustainable transport projects â€“ including how to get more people to switch from four wheels to two.
It has told staff at its 36 offices across Britain that they must drive or use public transport. They can use bicycles only if they are working away from roads, such as on canal towpaths.
One of Jacobsâ€™ biggest customers is Transport for London, which has a target of achieving a fivefold increase in the level of cycling by 2025
