The reason he’s legged it is possibly because he’s fitted it with a larger electric motor than is legal in the U.K.
Or he panicked. Or he was carrying something illegal. Or maybe the bike was stolen. Specialised (brand) e-bikes are £2200 - £5,500.

In any case the cyclist made things worse. The police have the bicycle and arrested a suspect.

Most of these ebikes are fairly new, so I doubt it would be difficult to track the owner via the serial number. Even if it was a second owner.

It's a more advanced system than that. It uses bifocal light sensors coupled with an intelligent*, self aware and self learning data processing unit to detect when pedestrians are in proximity to active the noise generator. The system is portable and can even be powered by a varity of energy sources although there have been concerns about the units high consumption of the dangerous and sometimes deadly chemical dihydrogen monoxide.

* Initial trials have shown the downside of intelligent data processing. SImiliar to the rise of AI robots deciding to exterminate humans, the trials have shown that the intelligent data processing unit has on occasions decided the most efficient process is to remove the noise generator, or has decided that statistically, it is overall better to not waste energy on activating the sound generator and accept the occasional human casualty.
Yeah I am talking about having a much more 'dumb' solution in which it blares out noise all the time even if there is no one there. This is clearly a superior solution.

Assume everyone else is an idiot and out to kill you.....
When other people realise I *am* assuming they are idiots, then they usually do seem to wish for my disappearance! :confused::cool:

....personally I wouldn't trust a soul:rolleyes:
You could have mentioned that before I sold my Ampera for one!
