E-tags for Cyclists?

There are many parallels between motorcycling and cycling.

"NSW Police traffic services head Superintendent John Hartley said police ignore most cycling offences they witness because of the difficulty in apprehending or identifying the bike rider.
"There are certainly some operational issues in trying to stop cyclists because they are quite mobile and police are usually on foot or in a car," Supt Hartley said.

"You can't identify the cyclist because there are no registration details on them.
"Most offences a police officer sees wouldn't be stopped or fined because of the factors in trying to stop that cyclist."
