Sir Graham goes out on patrol with Op Pedalo Specials in Cambridge
February 13th, 2013
Cambridgeshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner went out on patrol on Tuesday evening (February 12) to see Specials in action as part of Operation Pedalo, the initiative to tackle anti-social cycling in Cambridge.
“Operation Pedalo‟ is about educating and enforcing anti-social cycling and cycling offences to make Cambridge safer for all road users and clamp down on crime.
The aim of the operation is to reduce road deaths and casualties amongst cyclists, reduce cycle crime and anti-social cycling in the city.
Sir Graham said: “I am looking forward to going out and seeing first hand the good work our Specials are doing in Cambridge. I want to grow the number of Specials in Cambridgeshire, who I think do an excellent job.
“I have said that the law is the law, whether you are talking about pedestrians, cyclists or motorists and road safety generally is a particular concern to me.
“There are more bicycles per head of population in Cambridge than almost anywhere else in the country. As a result of concerns that were brought to my attention during my election campaign I asked the Chief Constable to tackle anti-social cycling.
“Seeing two of the areas I have highlighted working hand in hand will be excellent.”
