On the issue of cycling on the pavement, some years ago the Association of Chief Police Officers issued advice not to prosecute for cycling on pavements and to advise cyclists to use pavements next to A-class roads. Today, cyclists are a menace and dangerous, particularly to the aged.

Fixed penalty notices would soon deter and CPOs could deal but Thames Valley’s finest would have to get out of the cars and put their caps on.

Just a thought.
