A Crown Court ruling in Chichester has implication for groups of riders caught speeding.
The ruling makes the lead rider responsable for the other members in the group, so if the riders behind you are doing 100 plus to catch up and you are just over the speed limit they will treat you as doing over 100 as well or more severely because you were at the front.
If a lot of groups are out together you could be charged with being the leader of a group you are not with. Fair or what?
It will put pay to the ride out with your mates.
If you would like to try to stop this ruling there is a petition you can sign on the no.10 site http://pettion.number10.gov.uk/Lead-Biker-fined/
