Police Scotland Survey
Police Scotland consults with the public every year on what their priorities are for policing in their community. In 2016 the consultation process is online and will be open all year. Take the survey at:

Cycling on pavements

There have been complaints of children cycling on pavements in the town centre. This is hazardous for pedestrians, particularly when exiting from a shop or domestic dwelling which has a doorway directly on to the street.
This is a reminder that cycling on pavements, unless it is officially designated for cyclists (and there would be signage to indicate this) is illegal. Rule 64 of the Highway Code and S129 Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 refers.
