The Metropolitan Police Commissioner admitted today he would not cycle in London. Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said he never usual chose to travel by bike, adding:
"It seems to be that if you get it wrong, or the driver gets it wrong, the person that's going to pay is the cyclist. It seems to me that there's a lot of traffic and personally I wouldn't (cycle). But of course some people don't have the choice, economically it's not easy you know."
