£50 fine for cyclists - ASL enforcement
Just wanted to warn cylists that as part of the Advance Stop Line enforcement police are fining cylists if you stop past the second white line. I was given a £50 fixed penalty this morning - I should explain that a car had already occupied the "cycle box" and the nature of the junction is such that beyond the second white line was the only safe place to stop. The policeman acknowledged the point but said I had to go to court to contest it...
They were stopping motorists too, but I have to say they seemed to be stopping more cyclists than anyone else so watch out.
I was "caught" just before 9am this morning going North over Putney Bridge and turning right at the lights to go down New Kings Road. Apparently this sort of enforcement will be moving to junctions around London as part of ASL enforcement.
