Quebec cyclists could soon face much heftier fines for breaking the rules of the road, thanks to some amendments to the province's Highway Safety Code.

Under Bill 165, fines for cyclists caught without reflectors or running red lights would start at $80, up from the current $15 minimum.

The bill, which also aims to crack down on dangerous driving, was tabled at Quebec's National Assembly in December and contains 86 proposed measures.
