I've seen a lot of police doing this and it seems they are doing it the right way (education rather then fine). I don't think it's totally unreasonable for motorbikes to be in there too FWIW

I often witness lemming-like behaviour on this stretch of road where one person crosses and others just follow without checking whether it's safe. I reckon that people are just so concerned about catching the 18:45 to Basingstoke they forget about the traffic.
18:50 platform 6

Grrrrr
Critical Mass was huge tonight maybe a thousand at the start. Very mixed crowd and varied music. A long route from Waterloo to Holborn to Picadilly Circus to Kensington to Victoria to Trafalgar Square to Embankment to St Pauls across the Millenium Bridge to the Tate Modern along the south bank and Tooley Street to Tower Bridge then up through the City to Goswell Road, Angel and when I left it at Kings Cross half an hour ago there were still 200 cyclists at 10.20pm.

Given the death rate for riders, not at all.

That said, I don't know how the rural carnage (failing to follow curves at a ton?) compares to the urban death toll; nor the die/kill ratio in either case.
 
Just seen a bicycle fully under a car on the A3 kingston road. There was a police car and an ambulance by it but no sign of a person. I'm hoping that they are fine or being seen too...
