Cyclist OI NO !
Right, I used to be fairly laid back about a lot of minor traffic matters but henceforth that will cease.
After riding my motorbike home late last night and watching a pedal cyclist ignore a stop line and a red light to get promptly whacked by a truck, I dashed over to aid the rider, the first words out of his mouth was. " its that fucking trucks fault for not stopping" Jesus..
No.. If I can and it warrants it (ie. I am on foot or pedal cycle ) and I see a cyclist go thru a red light anymore you are getting a ticket. Simple as that
FPN - RED LIGHT PEDAL CYCLE
FPN - FOOTPATH
Until people get it in to their heads the RED LIGHT MEANS STOP !
Oh and if your a fellow motorist and you think its ok to pull in to the Green box past the ADVANCED STOP LINE - Say hello to a ticket as well.
