Letter to Editor:- "No
Lights... No Stop..."
"MERSEYSIDE Police have continued to pay
little or no attention to the rise in riders of pedal bikes flaunting the laws
of the land. By day, often young and old can bee seen riding up 1 way roads,
with traffic nearly hitting them. Riding on pavements and worse. This is
not just children, its adults of all ages and sexes! Then you have at
night the worse problems. The number of times I have nearly hit riders who
pay no attention to the laws of the road, riding, dressed in black or other dark
clothing, at night, with out lights. Yet I continually see Police cars and
vans drive passed them. Not even checking to see what they are up to.
These riders are using bikes to commit crimes, yet the Police seem to pay no
attention. Even when reports are issued about them, they do not react to them.
This situation is out of control and someone will be killed as a result of this
or worse! PLEASE can you ask Merseyside Police why they don't react to this
issue?" James, a Southport Town Centre resident.
