Cyclist on footpath in March


CYCLISTS caught riding on the pavement in March are being hit with on-the-spot fines.

Police launched the crackdown this week after concerns were raised by residents.

Officers have warned cyclists that they will receive a £30 fixed penalty notice if they are caught riding on the footpaths.

PCSO Sally Mitchell said: “We’ve had a number of complaints about cyclists riding along the pavements and nearly knocking over pedestrians.

“We will be out and about taking a robust approach and issuing fines to those caught.

“There are designated cycle paths in March so there is no excuse to cycle on a footpath.

“We don’t want to discourage people from using their bikes but they should stick to designated cycle routes and think of others.”
