No Cycling signs needed either end of pavement under railway bridge to reduce danger to pedestrians using that footpath

Whilst the majority of cyclist behave themselves, there is a number that flout the law and endanger other road users.

I live at Park Road near the town centre, and often walk to work off Mill Road, and risk my wellbeing every time I walk out because of cyclists:

Cycling on the pavement (fine up to £500 for starters) Whilst using a mobile phone Whilst drinking lager, mostly Whilst cycling hands-free or ‘pulling a wheelie’ Without lights Ringing their bell to scare pedestrians out of their way Or a combination thereof

As if that isn’t a string of accidents waiting to happen, just try to walk along the narrow pavement from Murray Road to Mill Road under the Railway Station, the pavement that is barely wide enough for a single file of pedestrians, and see the number of bikes being ridden on the pavement, with full expectation that the pedestrians will give way to them. It’s a plague, a wholesale danger, oh and it’s also illegal I believe?

When will the council take action to protect its Council-tax paying residents and other road users on foot from the humiliation, confrontation and totally unacceptable behaviour of cyclists who think they can get away with it?

Place No Cycling signs either end of the pavement and randomly send Enforcement Officers to harvest rich pickings from the dozens of offenders that break the law daily.

Seriously, before someone gets knocked into the road in front of a bus, take some action, as this problem is growing and growing and is not going away.
