I very much doubt if they did say that, because it's perfectly reasonable for one person to be fined and others ignored, one person can only deal with one offender at a time. As stated by previous posters, it happens all the time.
And only 18 sentences.
That's more exclamation marks than I've used in the last year.
Oh, don't be silly. How many others were riding on the pavement. If you hadn't mouthed off at him he would probably have let you go with just a warning and selected somebody else to "harass" and "target".
You sound like a spoilt, entitled, foul-mouthed brat, and if you are not any of things you should be even more ashamed of your behaviour.
In his first manifesto he pledged to repeal the outdated and stupid law of riding on the pavement.
The roads are now ridiculously overcrowded by mostly motorists.
Cyclists are quickly catching up to motorcyclists in deaths on the road.
Over in Europe they paint a white line down the middle of pavements, cyclists on the left, pedestrians on the right usually.
The Police never stop for anyone they see riding on the pavement in my experience because they also feel its stupid restriction which needs overhauling in 2017.
I see the intimidation by some motorists virtually every time I go out on my bike where cars deliberately skim by me by two feet, then pull out towards the middle after passing. We need a national UK law of 5 ft clearance to be in force with £100 fines for these saddo s who think its fun to see how close they can get without damaging their cars.
Maybe in 1949 the law had some meaning..not now , and never will have until cars stop killing cyclists so often.
Some idiot jobsworth in a phony uniform , with no real power has dished up a "fine " to big -up his ego.
I would just ignore it completely, just like I ignored a private parking fine years ago
Indeed it is good that she seems to be willing to address the problem she finds herself in.
If only she would answer some of the questions asked, she might find more help forthcoming.
I'm afraid they do, you tube will show you plenty.
Mostly driving on pavements to jump queues to make left turns.
errrrrr.......unless he can run 15 miles an hour it would be a fast chat!!! lol
Ride hard or stay home :iloveyou:
