Yesterday evening, on my commute home, I had an incident with a car. Afterwards I was unsure whether I was right or not - hence I want the opinion of you lot please
On my homeward journey I have to cross a very narrow road bridge. My direction of travel has priority over the oncoming traffic and the bridge is just about wide enough for a car with perhaps two or three feet to spare on the width. I was the only vehicle approaching from my direction but there was a blue Peugeot coming in the opposite direction. I reached the bridge well ahead of the Peugeot so proceeded to cross - fully expecting that the Peugeot would wait at the "Give Way" markings on the other side of the bridge.
IT DIDN'T! I got half way across and was met in the middle by an angry elderly lady who wound down her window to berate me. Before she could speak I said "I have right of way you know" - to which she replied "Yes, but your just a tiny little bicycle and should move over" and then proceeded to push past me (she could do that as I'd pulled over to talk to her through the drivers window) and drive off.
So who was right? I did have Right of Way but was I being petty expecting her to wait for me to cross? Was she just an arrogant old biddy who doesn't understand the risks involved in cycling on a public road?
I await your deliberations and opinions and "Thank You" in advance
