The City of London Police will be running a campaign between January 7th-11th to raise the awareness of all road users and pedestrians to issues relating to safer cycling.
The aim is to reduce casualties, help improve road safety for pedestrians and cyclists and reduce the number of traffic offences committed.
The campaign will see police officers enforcing advanced stop lines rules for motor vehicle users, as well as providing crime prevention/reduction advice on locking up bikes. They will be also be on the lookout for cyclists jumping red lights and riding on the footpath – two of the main offences committed by cyclists.
During the five day campaign, officers will be placed at 15 key junctions in London to provide advice and take direct action, where necessary, to promote safer cycling.
