This isn't really a general question, I just came across some very dumb/lucky people on the road today. Judging by their bikes they are not STW readers.
Firstly I saw a women pile in to the back of the women in front who slowed for a pelican crossing. Hilarious because they ended up in a heap, but also luck because if traffic had been moving then they or their bikes would definitely have been clipped by someones car.
Shortly after this someone decided to ride into the side of my car. I was parked. He had a massive go at me for knocking him off his bike which made it hard for me to keep the expletives to myself and I let the silly bastard know that in order to knock him off I had to be moving so in actual fact he know owed me however much money it would take to fix the wing mirror, passenger door and front wing that he has smashed in.
He grabbed his bike and buggered off.
I'm trying to focus on the funny side of this because I am still pretty fuming about this.
Lastly I was following a truck there was a cyclist who was in the middle of the road coming the other way. I don't know what he was looking at, his head was down and he was just veering accross into my lane of traffic, he got next to the lorry and either realised in the nick of time or actually bounced off the side of it. Either way, my heart was in my mouth because I thought he was going to end up under it. I thought afterwards that I should have blown my horn to try and wake up the cyclist and get him to focus but it all happened so fast.
All of these incidents happened within about 5 minutes of each other.
PAY BLOODY ATTENTION - Don't just complain about all the car drivers, make sure you help the stupud cyclists out there by pointing out that they are as much of a danger to themsleves as cars are .
