Guess how much :)

1) Why was cyclist not done for drunk in charge, or am I confused over this?
2) How much would you expect this gentleman to be fined IF anything at all?

As for the fixed penalties he could have had 2@£30 each and possibly summonsed for the other offences. The best way to deal with this was the summons to court.
If he would have failed to give his details he could have been locked up under S.24 PACE/S.110 SOCAP.

My mate used to bike everywhere as he didn't back then have a driving licence. He got a tug on the A12 up our way for drunk on a bicycle and it cost him a fiver. Was probably 30 years ago though.

you can breathalyze a cyclist, you can't arrest them for failing to provide but if they wish to provide then they can ;)

I think in my mate's case, the fact that he was cycling up the A12 (trunk road std, single carriageway) and using all of it, was probably evidence enough!

Hmm..£915 does seem a bit harsh..........

I couldn't help but notice this though.
I really felt for the cop though as if there's one thing I can't stand it's Cyclo-terrorist and this one also knew his law which was doubly annoying.
