    The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG UK) say Transport for London (TfL) has ended up with egg on their face again.

    In July MAG awarded TfL a "Raspberry Award" for their motorcycle awareness video and campaign due to its gratuitous intention to shock and unintelligent message that bikes are bad and dangerous.

    On the 9th September 5,250 riders supported the biggest KillSpills rally highlighting the lobby of Government on the danger of diesel spills to all road users.

    MAGs Director Of Public Affairs Trevor Baird said, "The rally and the KillSpills team are the legitimate voice of riders on diesel spills, the team sit on the relevant sub groups of the National Motorcycle Council to deliver the Government's National Motorcycling Strategy."

    Despite the rally being escorted by the Police from the Ace Cafe to the Houses of Parliament, Transport for London have started issuing Penalty Charge Notices to riders who strayed into the bus lane in Park Lane.

    Stephen Edwards, KillSpills Campaign Manager says, "We will do everything in our power to help riders with this ridiculous fine.
