- Heavy handed Rozzers?
I must say I was all ready to pile into this thread with tales of heavy handedness by the police but 1) he does not appear to have received a formal caution which would involve a form filling exercise at the nick but an instant caution ie roadside chat and words of wisdom. 2) if he don’t like the fixed penalty he can dispute it and have his day in court but he may well lose and someone may add in the ridding on the pavement charge which the officer appears to have not bothered with.
looking at the law I hazard a guess any one who rides a mountain bike at night is ignored a lot by the plod when not displaying one red one white and 4 amber reflectors in the correct places .Posted 4 years agonealgloverMember
I would rather he rode home pissed on the pavement (with or without lights) instead of jumping in a car and driving home pissed.
That’s all very well, but totally irrelevant as he didn’t have a car. So pretty pointless.
A more relevant comparison would be…..
Would you prefer that he walked the 300yards home with his bike, rather than ride it home lightless and on the pavement and get a ticket for £50 ?
