Cyclists were caught breaking red lights, cycling on footpaths and other dangerous behaviours. The crackdown also detected a number of motorists who had parked in cycle lanes.
Head of the Cork Divisional Traffic Corps, Inspector Finbarr O’Sullivan, said the operation was carried out across the city as a result of feedback from motorists and other members of the public.
“We have reports of cyclists on footpaths, breaking red traffic lights, and of vehicles parking or obstruction cycle paths,” Insp O’Sullivan said.
“It must be noted that this was caution only. We will be prosecuting offenders in future operations,” he added.
The operation was carried out yesterday between 12pm and 2pm and then again in the afternoon, from 3pm to 5pm.
Inspector O’Sullivan said a mix of local, non-national, and some tourists were stopped by members of the force during the targeted operation.
