Following reports that the Metropolitan Police had set a target for officers to fine 40 cyclists in 4 months, I heard from Detective Chief Superintendent Glyn Jones, the head of the Met's traffic police unit.
You will see below that DCS Jones describes the internal target-setting memo as a misinterpretation of his instructions. CTC welcomes this, but we sought his assurance that no police officers in London still have targets to fine cyclists.
His response was that the original target set was intended to target dangerous behaviour by both motorists and cyclists and that only those who commit an offence would receive a FPN. He has not clarified whether or not these targets are still in place.
