Last night, 9.45pm, its dark, I am just about to turn right in my car out of Larchwood Avenue onto Liverpool Road South and I am looking both ways to check Liverpool Road South is clear.
Out of the corner of my eye I spot movement to my right and then I see what to me is a very disturbing sight. Up to 10 men/youths riding cycles towards me. No lights on any of the bikes, all in dark clothing and the whole gang of them spread across Liverpool Road South taking up about three quarters of both carriageways!
How much danger is that? Yes they may have no concern for their own welfare but pity the poor vehicle driver that crashes into them and inevitably gets the blame for doing so!
I have seen such a stunt done before in Maghull this year on the duel carriageway A59 where a number of young lads were in effect blocking one side by riding their cycles in such a way that vehicles could not get past them but that was in broad daylight!
What on earth is going on how long before some of these cyclists are dead with a vehicle driver in court taking the blame?
