Police are going easy on cyclists
The reason cyclists ride on pavements and in the wrong direction up one-way streets, ignore traffic lights and cycle without lights after dark is that they know they can get away with it.
In my younger days, when the police were keener on enforcing the law, any of these offences could result in an appearance before the magistrates and a fine. Now there is no deterrent.
As for dark clothing, if a cycle is equipped with lights front and rear, as required by law, it should be easily visible, irrespective of the colour of the rider's attire.
After all, dark-coloured cars are driven around at night!

David Wimperis, (a cycling motorist), Braunstone.
Once again we have another Saturday afternoon with a Leicester City game cancelled.
The Birmingham home fixture has succumbed yet again to Sky.
Do Leicester City listen to their fans? I don't think so.
All that City can see is the profit they are making out of the dedicated fans, whether they are season tickets holders or the people who pay week in and week out.
City haven't given the average fan a thought. We buy our tickets on the understanding that most games will be played on a Saturday.
Once again we are governed by TV. I for one won't be renewing my season ticket and if anybody from City reads this, please reply.
Where would you be without the fans? Think again.
Ian Vincent, Leicester.
