Cyclist caught riding bike on busy motorway in Surrey


This cyclist ended up taking a ride along
Britain’s busiest motorway after he claims an app on his phone advised him of the apparent
short cut. The man was spotted on CCTV riding on the
hard shoulder of the clockwise carriageway of the M25 between junctions 10 and 11 in
Tuesday morning’s rush hour. At times he even crossed lanes. Police and the Highways Agency used motorway
cameras to keep track of the cyclist. And it was up to Sergeant Phil Dix, from Surrey
Police Road’s Policing Unit, to stop him. He was supposedly unaware that he had committed
any offence. I then made sure he was safe, put him in the back of my car, where we had
further discussions about the legalities of riding your bike on the motorway. He was issued
with a £50 fine for contravening a red traffic sign, and I safely helped him across the road
onto the A30, where he rode home.
