Police using bikes to fight cost of petrol

I said yesterday that some police forces had to cut front line jobs because of the rising cost of fuel. I said that I would make them ride a bike. Unfortunately in one police force it didn’t seem likely because the police would have to pass a cycling proficiency test. You can read that here.

Fortunately the Devon and Cornwall police are a bit more intelligent and have decided that its time to order 120 bikes to cut their fuel bill which is due to rise by £300,000.

I am glad that a police force has decided to take common sense route.
