Hi to all of you over there. Please accept my apologies if this has already been covered.
Over here in England and especially in the Cities and large towns there is a culture of cycle users that insist on using mobile phones whilst out physically riding.
They have very little regard for their own safety & possibly their lives.
Riding whilst making & receiving calls and often riding NO HANDS is a sure fired way of a disaster waiting to happen. Often it is also carried out on the footpaths and putting pedestrians,children in prams and buggies at risk never mind the potential for coming off into the moving traffic.
What is the view over there ?. Is it ignored by the Police because of the Paper Work involved or is there an ON THE SPOT FINE or confiscation of the cycle and returnable only upon payment of a fee?.
