Red lights

If you think you can run a red light on your pedal cycle anywhere near me, be warned you will get a fixed penalty notice, and if you fail to pay I will come knocking to arrest you for non payment of fines.

This week I found out from the court on my regular visits that 8 of my last issued FPN's for failing to stop at a red light I issued last year to a number of pedal cyclist had not paid the court and failed to show on a summons.

So I applied for a few warrants today and arrested all 8 at their places of work and carted them all off to court. Harsh ? probably but it isn't my fault they chose to ignore the courts of this land. One gentleman employed by a large English bank decided to vent his anger at the magistrate and was found in contempt of court and was taken down to the cells to appear again tomorrow morning when he has "cooled his heels"

I note with interest today on the BBC news again about red lights and cyclists, well boyo's do it around me and expect a ticket.

nuff said.
