It's a 3-points-on-your-license for this offence. Although it's another example of how people driving get away with traffic offences as this simply isn't policed.

The police say they are far too busy to prosecute these style of offences. And they'd be right as it's endemic in our country. It's endemic because they backed away from prosecution in the first place.

Strange that they have plenty of time to prosecute people riding without lights, despite the evidence that this action only causes 2% of cycle accidents, and mainly only harms those that are silly enough not to use lights.

Stopping or Parking in Cycle Lanes
Highway Code Rule 240 (backed up in law)
You MUST NOT stop or park on a tram or cycle lane.
