London Mayor Versus Aggressive Cyclists

London Mayor Boris Johnson, an avid cyclist himself, is calling on local law enforcement to crack down on the city's aggressive cyclists who he says are making it less safe to bike.

"'The key point is there is a huge upsurge in interest in cycling and in cycling generally, and there has got to be a symmetry, there has got to be a greater attention to safety, and quite frankly, there has also got to be a greater attention from cyclists on the rules of the road.

'What the police should be focussing on with much more severity are cyclists who cycle on the pavements, who cycle in a fast and intimidating way, and who jump the lights.'"

He argues that unless it's safe to bike in London, there's no point in encouraging more cycling.
