Harrow Police fine drivers in bike awareness operation in Station Road
Police fined more than a dozen drivers during an operation aimed at raising awareness of cyclists on Harrow’s roads.
Officers stopped 18 vehicles in Sheepcote Road and Station Road during Operation Cyclops between 7.30am and 9.30am on Thursday, November 28.
Thirteen drivers were handed fixed penalty notices for offences including using their mobile phones whilst driving and failing to wear a seatbelt, while all were given information on being aware of cyclists on the roads.
Two prohibition notices were also issued to drivers of goods vehicles, one for vehicle detail irregularities and one in relation to driving hours.
Six cyclists were killed on London’s roads between November 5 and 18, leading the capital’s mayor Boris Johnson and the Metropolitan Police to call for increased awareness of bikes.
