The above “article” from the Fremantle Gazette, February 19, 2013, page 14 suggests that the Western Australian Police at Fremantle now have their own bike patrol unit. Whilst I think it is great the WA Police are adopting bicycles as a tool in their armour I do find it rather amusing, no hypocritical that of all police areas, Fremantle gets a bicycle based patrol unit. After all Fremantle Police don’t have a great track record in enforcing laws to protect vulnerable road users.
Who knows having officers on bicycles might, just might make them more aware of what the rest of us have to put up with way to often. Now if they just went out in Lyca 🙂
