Hamilton cyclists may have to chip in for safer bike lanes.
City councillors are learning more about the feasibility of implementing bike licenses Monday.
The idea was raised after a recent debate on the 200-thousand dollar cost of designing bikes lanes on the Claremont Access.
Councillor Donna Skelly told CHML’s Bill Kelly Show, the number one goal is to keep cyclists safe and a 10 to 20 dollar fee would be small price to pay.

Councillor Terry Whitehead says cyclists could help fund Hamilton’s lagging 20 year cycling master plan by paying a licensing fee.
Councillor Sam Merulla argued that licensing is not something the city could enforce.
