Crackdown on Cyclists in City Centre

first_imgPolice in Oxford have been cutting down on cyclists riding through pedestrianised areas of the city this week.In the second crackdown in three weeks, 71 people were caught ignoring the bans on Cornmarket and Queen Street, with 25 receiving £30 fines in Cornmarket, and a further 46 fined in Queen Street.While many cyclists are against the ban, stating that signposting and boundaries are not obvious, many others believe that the bans are necessary to make cyclists more aware of the danger they put themselves and others in to when ignoring the rules of the road. Local police report that “This will now be a routine operation” and that cyclists should expect regular surveillance of the area.last_img
