Rebel Without A Pause: Mitchell Runs Red Light On Bike

Mitchel

Andrew Mitchell was spotted by a Guido co-conspirator outside Portcullis House showing an uncharacteristically flagrant disregard for the law by running a red light – biking over a  pedestrian crossing when the green man was lit. Luckily for him no policeman were around this time…

Clearly Mitchell just doesn’t care for reds or plebestrians…

According to Cycle Law cyclists have been jailed for this, this is the guidance:

Under the Road Traffic Act 1988 s.36 and the Traffic Signs Regulations and Directions and Directions 2002 regulations 10 and 36(1), road users must not cross the stop line when the traffic lights are red. This offence, also known as ‘red light jumping’, applies to cyclists as well as motorists. The maximum penalty for red light jumping is a £1,000 fine and six penalty points endorsed on the driver’s licence however, in most cases, a driver will get a Fixed Penalty Notice (On-the-Spot Fine) of £30 whilst the maximum would only ever be imposed if the Fixed Penalty Notice is contested and taken to court. The punishment is also applicable to cyclists who, if caught, can be issued a Fixed Penalty Notice of £30.

That’s not nice-ycle…
