Cycle-Cops Training - photos used with permission of János László, Hungarian Cyclists' Club President..
Peddle powered police can be expected around the centre of town, on Margaret Island, and at Népliget and Római-part. Patrolling between the hours of 09.00 - 21.00, the new bike-cops are on duty mainly to police traffic offences by cyclists. And the good news for fellow bike riders is the bicycle-police will also protect the rights of all those on push-bikes.
As mentioned, Budapest plans to join the club of cities that offer public bike-sharing as part of the public transport service portfolio - before that scheme arrives the cycle-cops will have chance to get used to thier new beat as bubi [boo-bie] will only go live in 2013 - for more on that click here.
