I never cease to be amazed by the amount of drunks who decide to hop on a Boris Bike and take to the busy streets of London! They can regularly be seen wandering along, two steps forward and then one step backwards, swaying all over the place, their eyes bloodshot from the amount of alcohol they have consumed and then they come across a Boris Bike docking station. Now they are obviously not fit to drive, for god sake they can just about walk along the street in a straight line and yet they seem to have the misconception that they are perfectly fit to jump on a Boris Bike and cycle on the public highway swerving and swaying all over the road!
It seems that TfL are quite happy to allow these drunks to ride around London in the middle of the night in their inebriated state causing havoc on the cities streets, causing vehicles to swerve to avoid a collision with them as obviously when a vehicle hits a cyclist it is always the cyclist that comes off worst!
Now surely TfL must have some sort of responsibility as they are the hirer of the cycles to those who hire them, they must have a legal obligation to ensure that the people hiring these cycles are in a fit state to ride them on the streets of London? Or is it that along with other issues that TfL are not really bothered? not bothered if a drunk rides around London on one of these bikes and gets hit by a car and injured or worse!
