Staff blog: A lecture from the rozzers

You might think your licence would be safe on a scooter but I’ve already been in trouble with the rozzers a week after picking mine up.   The Suzuki Burgman 650 ABS Executive has two automatic modes: Drive and Power. The latter is surprisingly, addictively brisk.   Pulling out of a petrol station on the way to work yesterday morning, I glanced over...

If you can't even spot a police car, you're not riding safe. When getting on a bike, start your brain before the engine. :)

Can see how it could happen, when riding in London you tend to be looking for the gaps or whats going on in frount of you, not so much about what your leaving behind.

 

I am impressed you managed to get up to 70mph anywhere inside the M25 while on the way to work  :-)

You bloody idiots

All you idiots posting sarcastic comments about the copper and slating him. Are you for real?!?! For God's sake. This dude broke the law, and the copper was leniant and understanding. What if for example he follows MCN and sees a load of bell ends like you lot slating him anyway?!?! Might not be so leniant in the future. For God's sake.

Good policing

The rozzer made his point well, the rider is suitably admonished and, crucially, has a positive attitude change which should result in better, safer riding. Good policing. Contrast with: Hiding down the road from a junction where commuting bikers are likely to exceed 35mph as they pull away from the lights and hand out 3pts indiscriminately. Result: said commuters now hate the police and ride faster/more selfishly &/or aggressively to vent their frustration. Less safe for all road users. Bad policing but it happens all the time. They know it as well.
