Cyclists are expected to dismount and walk through the Portland Road
pedestrianised area.

I suspect that what he regrets, after cycling away from the scene of the
injury he caused to that child in that pedestrianised area, is having
been caught and held to account, though a financial penalty of just £325
is hardly sufficient to satisfy the phrase "holding to account".
