Cycling violation fines nearly halve in London

New figures suggest that the number of cyclists punished in London for breaking rules such as riding through a red light or on the pavement fell by more than 43% in the first six months of the year.

The Times reports that 1,825 cyclists faced enforcement action by police, compared to 6,500 in the whole of last year.

Det Supt Andy Cox, head of Vision Zero, told the Telegraph that police have tried to prioritise the most dangerous road users, saying, “Our priority is to target the most risky issues and people, and that is about protecting the cyclist not targeting the cyclist.”
