The scooter based crime spree that is sweeping across central London is giving motorcycling a bad name. I feel reluctant to leave my drivers window open in town as I've seen what these villains are capable of.
Having to carry water in case someone is sprayed with acid for me is unacceptable in a civilised society.
The Metropolitan police are prevented from chasing this vermin through fears that these criminals may be injured in a pursuit .
All we can do as bikers is stay vigilant and perhaps make our scooters more difficult to steal. It's high time that we give law enforcement a free hand to eradicate this menace from our streets.
A Police motorcyclist was recently threatened with a knife and had his tyres slashed in Holloway. For me this is a turning point , a "Bonnie and Clyde" moment perhaps. We cant tolerate this any longer and its time we supported the Police properly.
Ride safely and be lucky
