Now 'illegal' courses for cyclists too?
Under what law can police offer courses for payment in lieu of judicial process? Speed awareness an idea of ACPO Ltd, with limited companies running courses for profit, we can find no legal authority for any of this. So another chance to earn money for police. Once set up, it then requires offenders to perpetuate and keeps coppers cosily off the streets too. See story here.
Maybe the powerful cycle lobby will join us to stop this profiteering by coercion.
