To think that these hire bikes should have some form of breathaliser attached to the stand going on before anyone can purchase. The amount of pissed people getting off of them at night is unbelievable.

I work late shifts in London and once saw a bike carrying two sloshed ladies who rode it down the footpath into a bin. They were unhurt and nipped back on and rode off giggling towards the city. (Also, I once saw a pished lad dragging a small kebab home on a massive Wickes trolley) London nights are never boring smile

I'm sure I read on a thread, some time ago, about a few MNers hiring Boris Bikes after one of the big, London meet ups - maybe you saw them George? grin

I hate them in red too.

Whilst its funny its still serious stuff though. It's still damn drink driving.

It's not 'drink driving' - the law from 1872 is about being drunk in charge of a 'carriage'

It's really not enforced either

Its still very wrong.

Lets all get tanked up, leave the car and cycle on the road. Why on earth this hasn't been thought of is beyond me.
