Cyclist pleads not guilty to ASL infringement

Alex Paxton, the 27 year-old cyclist who is challenging a fixed penalty notice (FPN) he received for failing to stop at a red light when a cycle box was blocked by a car, appeared at Lavender Hill Magistrates Court in Battersea on the afternoon of October 16.

Alex pleaded not guilty and a trial date was set for 5th December.

Alex received the FPN when he was unable to stop in a cycle box in Fulham in August.

Earlier in the week, his barrister Puneet Rai filed a letter with the CPS asking them to review whether a prosecution would be in the public interest. The judge has given the CPS until 6 November to respond.

If the trial goes ahead CDF will prepare the case with Alex and his barrister.
