The numbers do not lie

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?

Ninety seven.

That’s 97.

Scandalous.

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?
