Cycling on pavements

Useful reference in a post by John Adams: ‘On the subject of pavement cycling, Mike Chalkley found Home Office guidelines from 1999 that state: “… provisions are not aimed at responsible cyclists who feel obliged to use the pavement from fear of traffic, and who show consideration to other road users … officers recognise that the fixed penalty needs to be used with considerable discretion” (ref T5080/4, 23 February 2004).’ In a comment, Anthony Cartnell talks some sense, but not when he says, “the motor vehicle is the villain of the piece”. The villain of the piece is traffic regulation based on priority (an engineering model) when life on the road should be based on equality (a social model).
