Now there's an appropriate level of response to those malicious property damaging cyclists running rampant around our roads, all while unregistered.

After several minutes of discussion between the cyclists and police, during which time more police arrived, police sent the riders on their way.
Mr Singleton, who heads up cycling tech company Cycliq, Olympic medallist Graeme Brown and French based product reviewer Ray Maker were among the riders.
Later that day, police contacted Mr Singleton to apologise and clarify the riders were in fact correct.
“It would appear you are correct and my understanding of the regulation was mistaken,” the email read.
“I refer in particular to regulation 130 Road Traffic Code 2000 that allows for a rider to be alongside another, both dual and single lane.
“My apologies for any confusion caused.”
Mr Singleton said one of the policeman at the scene had told him he was on a committee for enforcing the one metre rule.
“I found that concerning,” he said.
At least they didn't taser him and lock them all up.
