"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."
