Question

Thank you for your answer to my question 2019/17406. My question was particularly about the actions by Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs). Other than the actions of the Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC), what work is being undertaken to ensure enforcement is fair and proportionate to the danger posed?

In addition to the work of the PCSOs from RTPC on the cycle superhighway 2, for the past several weeks the MPS cycle safety team (CST) have been conducting fair and proportionate intelligence-led enforcement patrols along CS2, in particular at Cable Street and Commercial Way in response to information received from the public. Enforcement has been carried out against a number of motorists and cyclists for a variety of offences including contravention of road signs, driving whilst using a mobile phone and driving without insurance. The CST does not have PCSO’s posted within the team although there are significant number of PCSO’s working within our safer transport teams, reassurance task teams and roads policing teams.
