A moving train has a local control room?
You are able to influence a court ?
Even if you have such influence and a perpetuator eventually ends up in
Jail that won’t restore missing teeth or a damaged eye or worse if they use
a knife.
OTOH there seems to be something wrong about the style of that post.
Almost as if someone else has posted in Rolands name, but there again
a couple of his posts don’t seem to flow like they did.
Pressure of looking after his wife perhaps or early signs of an age related
condition setting in.

If it is Roland making that statement he needs to remember that his
contacts in the control room
will be ageing at the same pace as himself, that means they will be
changing jobs,moving ,retiring
or getting ill themselves and it isn’t that long before such churn will see
a new team in place to whom
Roland will be an irrelevant old has been who is given attention till the
phone is hung up and they get on with their current tasks with no time for

No, but the control room on land can arrange for the train to be met at
the next convenient station.

It's a more a case of being able to influence the prosecutors to bring
it to court. After that it's an open and shut case.

I don't think the lycra louts are likely to be that aggressive.

I'm getting less tolerant, that's for sure.

Oh dear, that started off not too bad, but the only age-related
condition I have is weakening muscles (got a youngster to push the
wheelchair up a ramp last week, and they said "that's much harder
than it looks"). And yes, I'd be more tolerant if travelling alone,
however we are where we are.

Yes, that particular channel will rot away over time, but you
underestimate the effect that being put on notice in a place like
that has. They really don't want the paperwork involved, when
something they ignore goes bad.

Thats all well and good, but reactive policing still means that someone has
to get hurt first and that unfortunately might be you. Sometimes its best
just to let it go even if you're in the right.

I wouldn't be too confident about that if I were you. IME some of these twats
can be quite aggressive. Whether it would extend to physical violence who
knows but why take the chance particularly if you're with your wife at the
time.

How so?

TfL conditions of carriage (10.1.3) give wheelchair users priority over
designated spaces on buses but AFAICS have nothing similar for
Underground, DLR, London Overground and Elizabeth line. And nothing in
the byelaws.

Meanwhile tossing a bike looks likely to amount to criminal damage; and
then there's assault if you seek to overcome attempts by people to stop
you. Remember that self-defence extends to defence of property.

You hope, intolerance and increased aggressiveness from someone your age is
often the first sign of
of an age related problem . It is frequently stimulated by external
pressures and having to become a carer to someone like a spouse is a good
example.
Dementia denial is also common for understandable reasons such as fear of
the future.

Partly because I've been on training courses about handling situations
like that. And even the normally super-reserved British public might
intervene if there's an old man pushing a wheelchair being thumped by a
chav.

<thread convergence> They might even film it on their mobile phone.

I'm afraid I've tired of "letting it go" if that means letting people
ignore signage on public transport saying that a particular space is for
priority passengers, and in any case should only otherwise have two
bikes in it not four.

It's not just technology-specific byelaws, but signage on the trains. If
there wasn't a generic thing in the byelaws saying people should obey
signage, I'd be very surprised.

I'm not assaulting their bike, they are assaulting me.

Rubbish. The courts aren't full of cases of people who have been
acquitted of assault because they were violently preventing their
illegally parked car being towed away.

Then please surprise me by citing the byelaw and then the relevant sign.

Your words were "unceremoniously ejected". If you are now proposing
something more careful please tell us to where you would move the bikes
on a busy train.

Not if all they are doing is stopping you from interfering with their
property.

You need to establish first that they are doing anything criminal. Bear
in mind the Pauley case[1] where the Supreme Court decided bus drivers
couldn't force buggy users to move them.

You can argue the tube driver should act - e.g. hold the train until
cyclists make space for a wheelchair user. But I don't see how you can
manufacture from that a criminal offence that justifies you donning
mask, cape and exterior pants.

If that continues you won’t really be able to remove the bike(s) even if
you wish to,
all the keeper of the bike has to do is hold it in place while you huff and
puff.
They won’t need to assault you , what you are going to say in the call to
the control room ?
“. A cyclist won’t let go of a their bike on a train and I want to move
it, please send a Policeman .You know who I am.”

Control operative to another “ we’ve got that old Git Perry on the Phone ,
wants help to move a bike on a train down London way”. Other operative
“Righto , I’ll ask the Met to break off investigating gang crime and
shoplifting right away and send a couple of bobbies along to meet it and
tell the cyclist off for holding on to his own property.

Many (most?) TOCs also have their own local published cycle conditions

"FirstGroup operated a provision criterion or practice (PCP) consisting

So different to trains. And the case wasn't even about *cycles*,
assault, or interference with property, but DDA. Including the original
deficient policy, but also the reluctance of the driver to take any
action (other than tell the disabled person they were SOL).

For infringing the byelaws. Very likely anti-social behaviour too. The

It's up to them to decide if they wish to act, but they can't stop me
making the call.

Christ on a bike, another post from you on a topic from weeks ago that most
will have lost interest in.
as for the nitpicking about the which Police force most on here would
realise that my scenario was example rather than exact and Met flowed
better. You may as well have pulled me up on the use of Policeman instead
of Police officer in case the one attending turned up with tits instead of
a truncheon.

You really must be bored and in these times of Police forces being
stretched thinking you can pull strings somewhat delusional ,another
symptom of getting older.
As for calling 101 many passengers will have reached their stop by the time
t gets answered.

Yes, when Roland responds to a long-forgotten post weeks or months later,
one assumes he's found something important that needs to be added to a
closed discussion, but he adds nothing but his usual content-free
nitpicking. I think this is a new eccentricity from Roland, who's not
ageing well, descending from apparently being one of the most influential
people in the British computer industry four decades ago to a redundant
part-time jobsworth security guard now.

I don't have the hours in the day to treat Usenet as a chatline. Get
over it.

I'd have thought almost everyone here realised the railways were policed
by Transport Police, not the local geographical force.

That's a completely different category debate. Although as it happens I
have very very rarely seen female BTP, maybe they don't need the
sink-job, or aren't quite as delighted at having to deal largely with
drunken football "fans".

>You really must be bored and in these times of Police forces being

No, the delusion is yours, in that you fail to understand what strings I
have developed in my various day-jobs.

I never suggested rail passengers should call 101, you've imagined that.
And as for the delay in response when calling BTP on 61016, that's
precisely why I would consider pulling one of those strings.

Why do you keep insisting it stopped four decades ago? Lack of research
I presume.

And that kind of abusive response is exactly why I'll be finding out who
you are, and why you continue in your organised campaign of harassment.
Which, by the way, is against the law.

>to a redundant part-time jobsworth security guard now.

It's a multi-faceted part time job I retired from, and not remotely like
a "security guard". Even if one of the facets was understanding the way
the authorities can be triggered to respond to anti-social behaviour,
including actually triggering them when necessary.
