Police 'crackdown'

Correspondence forwarded by Paul Bruce. Anyone had a similar experience?



"Just writing because I've seen a LOT of police gathered at certain spots around wellington to stop cyclists and give them tickets. Is there some sort of crackdown on cyclists? Would be really great to know what was going on before i write a letter to say, the council or whoever is responsible. Its really quite infuriating all these police in their hi-vis gear stopping cyclists who appeared to be following all the rules (helmet, lights, hi-vis gear). Wouldnt their resources be better placed in educating car drivers on sharing the road with cyclists? Your thoughts would be much appreciated. Hope you are well."
