On a weekend when cycling safety is paramount, they are supposed to be setting the standards.
But in a display of clear disregard for the safety of pedestrians they are shown flagrantly breaching traffic signals and stop signs just to make a social media video on cycling.
Not only are the police officers seen breeching traffic signals you can clearly see them hurtling round corners on the footpath with complete disregard for the public.
The police were asked to comment on the standard of riding in the video and said.
“In this instance both police cyclists have crossed the line at the first set of traffic lights on Amber. The Highway Code states:
“Amber means ‘Stop’ at the stop line. You may go on only if the Amber appears after you have crossed the stop line or are so close to it that to pull up might cause a collision.” In this instance the officers were travelling at such a speed that to pull up might have caused a collision”
Clearly the bike has not even come close to the white line so the next time you get a tick for going through a red light just show this picture to the police !
Officers think we should remind officers that the law explains in the 1879 case of Taylor V Goodwin 1879 that a bike is a “carriage”.
And it should not be on the footpath also you should not ride at a speed and in a manner so as to cause danger, especially on a bike.
