Yorkshire “cyclists are traffic menaces” councillor banned from driving!

Today it emerged that anti cycling Yorkshire Councillor John Andrew Quinn, who accused cyclists of being “traffic menaces” in the weeks before Le Grand Depart has been banned from driving after being found to have almost twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system!
Quinn claimed that cyclists were “a law unto themselves” who “rode through his village at 40-50MPH knocking off wingmirrors”!

On June 29, Quinn, who wasn’t actually involved, stupidly stopped at the scene of a crash on Skipton Road, where a motorbike and side car had left the road, seriously injuring the rider.

When the police were speaking to him at the roadside they could smell the alcohol on his breath, and promptly tested him, to which he provided a positive sample and was later found to have had 61 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35!

It would seem that this bicycle hating idiot is actually a “traffic menace” himself and
he was banned from driving for 18 months, fined £420 and ordered to pay costs of £85 and victim surcharge of £42.

His ban will be reduced by 18 weeks if he completes a drink-drivers rehabilitation course by July next year.

We here at RCB love the sweet sweet irony of this piece of justice.
