Western Cape Transport MEC Robin Carlisle on Tuesday expressed a concern that cyclists were becoming increasingly vulnerable on the roads.
Three cyclists practicing for the Cape Argus/Pick n Pay Cycle tour were killed on the R62 outside Oudtshoorn when a car tried to overtake a truck and knocked them down on Monday.
A fourth cyclist is recovering in hospital.
This is the fifth incident in the past two months in which cyclists have been knocked down.
“We are committed to non-motorised transport and we will make it safe and if we have to get rough with motorised transport to understand that the roads are for both; we will get rough with them.”
Provincial authorities are considering changing traffic laws to better accommodate the needs of cyclists.
