Cycling offences on the increase

Cyclists in Bath who break road safety laws have been warned they face 30 fixed penalty fines after police recorded a sharp increase in offences.

Among the most common are cycling the wrong way down a one-way street, riding on the pavement and jumping red lights.

Special Officer Brian Wilson said last week a woman was knocked over in Westgate Street by a cyclist.

"The problem is getting out of hand. I am issuing on average five or six tickets a day," he said.
