    Yeah what a ****, did you read it as he said sorry straight away and realises he made some errors.

    If you read on it also it says he bikes to work and has a car follow him with his clothes and work stuff in :roll:

    Just a few things -

    1) We've all done it when riding around town. It's one of the 'perks' of being a cyclist - if the road is clear you can normally get a jump on the lights.

    2) The bit where DC went the wrong way around the traffic island - the road was deserted of oncoming traffic. The only cars at the junction were not going to be crossing his stream or he theres.

    3) The red light at the traffic crossing was to prevent people crossing, not to control traffic. How many times have you been stood at a crossing looking at a row of stationary traffic while the light says you can't cross?

    4) he went the wrong way down a deserted one way street. So? I've met cars doing that plenty of times and have long since given up reporting it to the Police as there is censored all they can do about it even when you give them the registration number. In the words f a traffic policeman I spoke with recently "It's a completely unenforcable law"

    5) If it wasn't David Cameron would we really care?

    No, we wouldn't. But he is a politician, who contributes to the production of the laws he has broken. Therefore, I think he should take extra care to adhere to these laws.

    Does his bike have refelctors? That's a legal requirement to ride on the road and also a near impossible law to enforce....

    because cameron is an mp, and in the public spotlight so oftne, he should make sure he sets an example to the people. they cant expect people to abide by the law if they're not willing to!

    You only need reflectors and lights between sunset and sunrise. Its legal to ride without them fitted any other time.(eg daytime)

    Its not legal to sell a bike without a certain set of reflectors though.

    Heres a link as to the legal status of it all.
