Hogwarts cyclists in Chester warned to ‘stay visible’

A sombre warning to all those cyclists in Chester who have been misusing their invisibility cloaks:

CYCLISTS who flout traffic laws in Chester are being warned to get their act together or risk prosecution.

City officials have revealed they plan to crack down on bike users who break the law following several reports of near-collisions on roads across the city centre.

Cyclists are being reminded they are bound by the Highway Code just as any other road user. They are told never to jump red lights, ride on pavements, pedestrian crossings or ride the wrong way in one-way streets.

In addition, they must think ahead,
stay visible and move over when it is safe and convenient.
