On 1st December 2014, between the dark hours of 6.30pm and 9pm, Thames Valley Police checked 110 cyclists in Oxford’s High Street.
How many £50 fixed penalty notices were issued for not having any lights?
And let’s remember where cyclists often put the blame for their accidents.
A £50 penalty is obviously insufficient.
Because, if you read the report, all 97 of these morons can get away without paying the £50 penalty.
Perhaps if the fine were £500?
And there was no loophole that got the law-breakers out of it?
