    Really? So when cars get off the road and drive into a building, does the driver push the car across the sidewalk?!?!

    [QUOTE=ByeByeEngland;3865551Large parts of NT have an impressive array of cycle routes. [/QUOTE]

    They are leisure routes, not daily use routes. The tunnels have bike routes, streets in Kowloon not having them. Big roads works going on the Saikung/Ho Chung area, and guess what - no bike lanes.

    Ugh, the physical and legal design of the bike paths makes them unusable in many areas. That the police went to nitpick at it -- damn they are over-funded! Very frustrating for the OP, but best just to pay and move on. You could share with the cycling group HK Cycle Alliance on FB or with the media if you're bothered.

    What, like all riders must be at least 18 years of age and hold a valid driving license? And they must wear seat belts regardless of whether they sit in the front or back? That registration information must be displayed on the windscreen?

    The biggest pain is that just a few seconds on at the next part of the track, my friend actually recorded all the people following us riding over the path (as would be expected), so it literally had no impact at all. Of course they got off when they saw us previously getting caught and then just hopped back on. I'm not condoning dangerous cycling like riding into main roads and not looking or even cycling along busy pathways, but if the concern was the reduction in cycling accidents then they most probably need to look into dangerous driving because I'm sure most of those 180 or so incidents they quoted last year were involving cars...but chasing drivers is far more difficult so let's go for the easy option eh?

    Well, I guess I have no choice...

    Thanks all for your comments

    I can tell you don't bike.
    At the very least read and understand what was said before responding. I said bikes follow the same traffic laws as cars. Not the other way around.
    Maybe you're drunk posting?

    It's not a thought post. It's the law. Google it before you make an even bigger fool of yourself. Bikes must obey all the traffic laws that cars must obey. That includes not riding on sidewalks.

    You can read, but you can't comprehend

    From the sounds of it, you don't know how to ride a bike, either? If you do, how's that seatbelt working out for you? Did you ride with a booster seat attached to the bike when you where a kid?

    'Cause they are the laws for cars.

    No helmets is illegal? On bike paths? That surely can't be true. I've never worn a helmet in five plus years of cycling in NT and I'm not alone.

    Also why are pavement riding cyclists that ring their bell seen as indignant? Sounds to me like they are being polite.

    Come on, you know what he means - the rules of the road, not car-specific rules.
