Martyn P replied to Seb's discussion Helmet Blitz this morning on Oxford & Riley!
"Blitzed again this morning 5 coppers all up. College Street and Park Street. Ticket issued along with some poor French tourist. More disconcerting is the number of pedestrians stopping and filming it. Judging from their age and the cold dead…"

Martyn P replied to Seb's discussion Helmet Blitz this morning on Oxford & Riley!

Martyn P replied to herzog's discussion Huge police operation on Oxford st this morning 26/3
"I understand that but if you start getting defensive with them you're more likely to get a fine. Instead I gave them a vague answer (skin) and they made me walk instead of giving me a ticket. So even though I wasn't obligated to give them…"
