    Running a red light in Brussels costs a driver 174 euros, but so does running a red on a bike, or by foot.

    Throughout July, the police in the Brussels-Capital-Ixelles area are on the lookout for offences committed by two-wheelers and pedestrians when it comes to traffic, BX1 reports.

    We must make weak users aware of their own safety, said Thierry Vandenhoute, traffic director of the police in the area to BX1.

    Different types of behaviour are targeted: pedestrians crossing outside crossings, cyclists crossing red, crossing a white line or driving on pedestrian crossings, etc.
