  6. Hi there, I need to get my fruit to a local market without using petrol and am building a trailer onto my bicycle – am I right in thinking this is but a proposal and that bike trailers have not as yet been outlawed? Would appreciate a reply so I know whether to persist with this project or, sadly, abandon it..

    • Hi there – absolutely, it was a proposed amendment to the Road Traffic Act (as serious proposal, and could well have gone through had there not been an outcry). The proposed amendment was rejected (for now…) and the team is still applying its mind to the matter. But it seems unlikely that such an amendment will be accepted, especially not as trailers are so obviously useful and relevant in our transport and poverty context.
