Final warning for Falmouth wrong way cyclists

Cyclists are being warned again they will receive a fixed penalty ticket if they |are caught riding their bikes the wrong way through Falmouth’s town centre.
Despite previous warnings by the police, some people still flout the one way streets and ride against the flow of traffic.
The matter was raised by town councillor, Oliver Cramp, who had a near-miss with a bike rider.
Addressing Sgt Gary Watts at a meeting of the town council last week, Mr Cramp said: “I stepped back for a car coming up from the car park and there was this man on a bike, who I never heard – I very nearly stepped in front of him.
“He managed to avoid me and had to get off his bike. It was lucky he didn’t go right into the car.”
Sgt Watts said: “We now prosecute, giving a ticket to every person that comes through.
“We cannot be there all the time, but when we see it, we deal with it and are dealing with it robustly.”
