Officers have been running an operation in response to complaints from the public about people cycling along Abington Street in Northampton town centre.
Police Community Support Officer James Earl from the Northampton Central Safer Community Team said: “Abington Street is particularly busy with pedestrians at all times of the day.
“Cyclists have been causing a hazard in this location that can easily be avoided by choosing to either walk with their push-bikes or to use the proper cycle route which runs in line with Abington Street, located on Dychurch Lane.”
“Anyone seen riding along Abington Street will be issued with a £30 fixed penalty ticket and given words of advice.”
