Saw this yesterday, however a read of the article will show you this...

"It turns out that the registered keeper of the car was not using the car that day and is not on the video"

But they should definately turn in the person who did it!!

Wouldnt suprise me if that car gets abuse everywhere it goes now!

What a bunch of fucking idiots.

Did anyone else notice that they look the type to act like that?

All cyclists should be issued a free sawn-off upon buying a bike, not just a helmet cam.

Then again, I forget why they wouldn't let me in politics.

Just for curiosity , when i was at school and we done the bike "test" , we were told to ride in single file , why do you meet cyclists now riding two and three abreast holding up traffic?

Because unfortunately some people are oblivious to the fact they are being a pain to everyone else. Its not acceptable to do what that driver did, but cyclists could help themselves be more accepted on the roads if they were a little more considerate to their actions.... and don't even get me started on motorbikes moaning about car drivers

Apparently it is legal to ride side by side on a push iron.

Problem is, it prevents motorists from over taking safely - so they either over take unsafely, or get upset about being delayed.

Common sense dictates that really you should ride in single file. But some cyclists just don't get it. Bikers are the same - the reasons why bikers become involved in accidents is that they don't act like cars - they weave in and out, trying to get ahead at all costs. I'm not being awkward here - I have full bike licence - I've done it - but my impression of superman put me off biking some time ago. Far too dangerous nowadays - all the plebs on the roads.

I'm a qualified dibble MTB instructor, and MIAS/ABC L4 instructor (MTB's are my main hobby after pugs and amateur radio) and we specifically teach how to ride abreast in certain circumstances to control the traffic flow around you. Not something should be done all the time or without consideration, but done properly and appropriately is quite legal and an aid to safety.

It prevents them from squeezing in and attempting unsafe overtakes, forcing them to wait until it is genuinely safe...or else forces them to stop and duff you up!

I've had one motorist cut us up and get abusive while I was actually teaching this on a course - off to court he went, out he came 6 points and 250 lighter.

That would be fine , if they would look over their shoulder , realise they are causing a pile up and then pull in , they can then pull out again when traffic has passed so they can continue their conversation.

Right up there with tractors on country roads.
