Today I found this message in my email: "I got stopped by a police officer on a bike this morning around the bottom of Hyde Park, near Hyde Park Corner. He told me that they are illegal and he didn't want to see me on one again. Looks like I'll be using my Brompton for commuting now! I believe that they are allowed to confiscate them, but luckily he didn't (guess he didn't want the paperwork)" It's from a member of the Facebook London EUC Riders group, (Name withheld) So in a second, that rider's riding is through or in jeopardy if he ever rides in that area again. And yes, I do believe they can and do confiscate illegal "vehicles". Under English law an EUC is effectively a motorcycle; an unregistered, untaxed, uninspected, and uninsured motorcycle, so illegal everywhere except private land. I'm afraid incidents of this type will only get more frequent. If I got told that where I live, I'm grounded. The police station is 300m away. I'm so glad I'll be off abroad again, soon. On a side note, I walked passed a GotWay rider in Bromley yesterday, in the rain. Tesla I think, or maybe MCM4 (I can't tell them apart at a moving glance). It was a miserable day, and anyone riding in it would not be riding for pleasure, so I didn't think it was fair to flag him down for a chat.
