No fines issued to cyclists in crackdown operation
No fines were issued during the cycling crackdown operation

Misbehaving cyclists who fail to dismount their bikes on a pedestrian footpath have been the target of police in the past week.

In a 'zero tolerance' crackdown cyclists faced the threat of £30 fines for contravening no-cycle zones at the junction between Queen Street and King Street, Maidenhead.

Police were stationed at the spot during peak commuter times on four occasions since Wednesday last week but no fines were handed out.

In December an 'educational' operation took place making bikers aware of the rules before fines were introduced.

PCSO Michael Thomas said: "The education operation was so beneficial that no tickets were distributed."

'Roaming' operations will now continue in the upcoming months when police will patrol the same spot at varying times.

They will also be stationed at the corner of Queen Street and York Road.

There are no plans to extend the crackdown into other areas of the town centre.
