Police commissioner calls for cycle NUMBER PLATES to remove rogue riders...

CYCLISTS will be forced to display ID like car number plates to root our rogue riders under new police plans, it was revealed today.

Katy Bourne, the police and crime commissioner for Sussex, said the move was needed so that bikers could be caught and prosecuted if they break the law.

The measure follows complaints from motorists and pedestrians about the behaviour of some of Britain’s growing number of cyclists.

They regularly jump red lights, mount pavements, kick out at cars that get in their way and perform dangerous manoeuvres.

Commissioner Bourne said: "I would like to see cyclists wear some form of identification like cars have, so you can identify them and prosecute them for breaking the law."

Cycling supporters are already up in arms at the proposal which has been dismissed as unworkable.
 “It has been tried and is not something that has worked in any country ever” Carlton Reid

A similar idea was found by the RAC in 2006 to be "impractical, bureaucratic and dangerous".
Carlton Reid, author of Roads were not Built for Cars and executive editor of BikeBiz, said: "It has been tried and is not something that has worked in any country ever."

The plate would have to be big enough to be visible to traffic cameras, making it difficult to fit on to an average bicycle, he said.

He added: "Number plates don’t stop motorists texting at the wheel, going through red lights or speeding.
"It’s an ill-thought-through idea. Does she expect every six-year-old to have a number plate on their bicycles?"

Cycling campaigners also hit back at those who claim bike riders don’t pay to use the roads - arguing maintenance is funded from general taxation paid by all taxpayers.

Motorists pay vehicle excise duty which is linked to emissions.

MPs will debate cycle safety in the House of Commons next week as calls intensify for the government to create an annual cycling budget worth £10 per head.

The demand has been supported by the AA, British Cycling, the Commons transport committee and James May, the Top Gear presenter.

The Department for Transport has promised to publish a plan for cyclists.

Labour last year put out a “cycling manifesto” and pledged to provide “long-term funding” for cycling, but Mary Creagh, the shadow transport secretary, has so far refused to commit Labour to an annual budget.

Perhaps if it all goes through we’ll be selling personalised bicycle number plates next!
