Get a bell or face a £2500 fine

The latest idiotic law to come from our government is to fine cyclists £2,500 for not having a bell. I think this is way out of proportion especially when a taxi driver was only fined a measly £750 for running over and killing a man in Oldham.

The reason for this is that cyclists can warn pedestrians that they are about to run them over. I wonder if a politician has ever even ridden a bike. I doubt it or they would know that cyclists would shout something like ‘get out of the way’ to warn people.

If politicians are seriously this stupid I think we should seriously consider having them committed and replaced with toddlers who could do a far better job than our present leaders.
