23k moped crimes last year one yesterday near me
In Croydon.they rob a family wile sitting in traffic.
As we all drive luxury cars we are probably more
Likely to be a target.i have a can of industrial strength

Running them over if it happen to me.any thoughts ?

My Mum got robbed this way on Nice promenade back in 2000. My Dad was sat in the car parked up and saw it so he chased after them in his car. Once they knew he was chasing them, they just rode over the central reservation, laughed and waved good bye. Been going on over on the continent for years but recently their crime habits have wandered into the UK.

Best option is to keep your doors locked and no accessible valuables in the car..........or move somewhere nicer.

Possession of a pepper spray or taser will result in a conviction for possession of a firearm under s5(1)(b) Firearms Act 1968 so not advisable. The di-icer is a legitimate car accessory so the boys in blue will struggle to prove you had it as an offensive weapon under the Prevention of Crime Act 1953.

If you can't get hold of a cattle prod or an AR-15 assault rifle and your local DIY store is out of Pepper spray then you need to carry one of these. Seems they have more guts than most bystanders and certainly more than the pond life robbing the jewellers!

Personally I'd issue a shoot to kill order.

They'd get the flogging of a lifetime. If you're big enough to have a crack, then you're old enough to be cracked.

That article was a load of ol' tosh! Firstly he isn't a cyclist, he's a thug on a bike. Secondly, he came across someone he had a grievance with.

So not really what we are discussing here.

Another justification for allowing tint film on the front drivers and passengers window. Tough to get through, and protects the occupants from UV

When we talk about a 'nice area', we are not talking about anywhere in London.

Surprised with so many 911 owners being bikers this has taken so long to come up. It's been an epidemic for at least a couple of years now, more like 4-5, and it's only really become headline worthy since Michael MacIntwat got his Rolex nicked.

It's rarer in the provinces but not unheard of. They're getting braver and braver as we go along. Probably because the revolving door of justice just keeps on revolving, and the police - despite all the bluster - still have a non-pursuit policy (in practice rather than theory) whilst the yogurt weavers in charge talk about how it's all the fault of society, not the individual members therein - which of course we've all failed by being so downright stingy with.

It'll take a top judge to get mugged out and then we'll gain some traction I'm sure. Until then, the Met have no less than 4 'specially adapted' BMW 'off road' normal on road bikes cos reasons. Well it might be 4; could be 3, or even 2 now, if a couple have been bikelyfed already by now. Who knows.
