Watch out! You errant riders of bicycle. From June 1 this year, all riders caught riding against traffic, ignoring traffic light signals, riding while using mobile phones, etc. will be handed a warning slip. Anyone who gets handed 2 such slips within a span of 3 years are required by law to attend a 3-hour safety riding course at a cost of 5,700 yen. All those who did not attend the course within 3 months of the stipulated period will be fined up to 50,000 yen.
I can buy a pretty good bicycle with 50,000 yen.
