Lights on Bikes or Lack of Lights

WE have recently asked on Twitter a quick survey about cyclists who are currently riding around the area without lights on their bikes. The question was:- "Do you think Merseyside Police should stop and fine cyclists who have no lights on bikes, as well as search them?" This is down to the fact local people and businesses are reporting a massive rise in incidents involving people cycling at night, without lights. We are told that often Police are failing to react to cyclists, of all ages, who even ride past them, at night without lights. Often the worry is that these people, who are often riding very late at night, dressed in dark clothing, often with hoods up, are up to no good. Our pole did result in one Twitter user asking:- "Why should I be stopped and searched while cycling?" The result of our quick pole was that 63% said:- "Yes, they are dangerous." 32% said:- "No, as it's not a priority" 5% said:- "Don't care, not interested." We are still interested to know your views. Please email us to:- or place your views on our Facebook Page.
