HC Deb 05 November 1934 vol 293 cc657-8W
Captain WATT

asked the Home Secretary whether instructions have been issued to the police to prosecute pedal cyclists who ride cycles at night without having attached to the back of their cycles the red reflector and white disc or strip required by the Regulations?


Offenders are, of course, liable to prosecution, but in order to allow time for the Regulations to become better known, I have suggested to the police, with the concurrence of the Minister of Transport, that for a short time contraventions should be dealt with by way of caution rather than by prosecution.
