But the fact is that pretty much anything other than the style of riding you were taught to do on your DSA test can be construed to be "due care and attention". The standard is judged against how you are expected to drive/ride. No point arguing it. The road traffic act is one of the most tested pieces of legislation in England, wales and NI (Scotland have their own law). If someone wanted to try and use the tyre warming defence i court, then your brave, very brave. Other than at big events or on specific biking routes, police do not target bikers. We all bring attention to ourselves as said above with small plates, loud exhausts or bizare riding styles.
