yes, that is correct, however we believe my son had justifiable cause due to almost being 'rear-ended' by a motorist, a short while prior to the bus lane contravention.
It appears as if no consideration has been given and their response has numerous erroneous claims regarding the law and its application. The signage is also not suited to motorcyclist and it is quite dangerous for a cyclist of any form in london to be looking at up high level while crossing a busy intersection at at time and particularly during rush hour. This last has been mentioned due to the nature of riding being entirely different to driving.
I believe that they may be negligent and want to stop what comes across as abuse with pound notes the only motive. I would like to consider taking them to court because the law should be applied with suitable aptitude and be technically correct, which it does not appear to be.
Thank you, regards,
No, not this one. The sign is just past the intersection at high level.
No, it did not do either.
That is correct if you happen to be walking past the sign or driving past as a passenger. He was neither. He had had a viable reason to be concerned and ride
defensively hence his move to the left of the path taken by the motorist. The letter sent is also not factually correct so I'm at a loss to understand how the law applies to one and not the another. Does the Council not have a duty of care when applying the law. Just because the signage is present does not imply that all road users have a reasonably opportunity to view safely, as on a motorcycle.
