Police Enforce ASL

Yes, you read that right!
This morning as I rode in, at the roundabout on the south side of Lambeth Bridge, there were two cycle-mounted officers in plain view. I asked one of them if they were here to enforce the ASL and the cycle lane, which are usually blocked. "We're giving them [drivers] a talking to" was the response. No fines or 3-point endorsements then. Contrast that with Westminster's rabble-rousing £100 fines for cycling offences.

This location is normally completely blocked up with traffic at that time in the morning rush-hour, but today, for some reason, it was very quiet. Not only was the usual traffic gridlock not in evidence, there were fewer cyclists as well. I have no idea why. So the officers were rather wasting their time...
