Attempted bike jacking trying to cross the north circ by Bounds Green tube. After 6 hours of parent consultations (the Joy’s of being a teacher) I was waiting at the head of the lights preparing to cross the a406. Cue quad pulling in front of me revving away, two motocross bikes pull either side and two other bikes pull behind me. Biker on the right tries to grab my bars so I know it’s time to get out of dodge. I see a timely gap in traffic, peg back the throttle and blip the rear brake into a sharp left. Bring the speed right up, fly through three sets of reds with traffic filtering across and final hairpin off the a406 through a final red and into the residentials to lock up and wait for it to all blow over.
After calling the non-emergency line, 4 mins of switchboard options and I finally get to report the whole affair. After which the woman said some boroughs will drop any traffic infringements others wont so if anything comes through the post try to appeal it. Anyone out there successfully managed to bounce these fines?
