The more people discuss and think about it the more likely it will be in people's minds when out on the roads.
I had a similar with a driver of a small bus this morning in Morden, swerving into the clearly marked cycle lane just opposite the Amadhiya Mosque.
I banged on the side of his vehicle and when it stopped, I squeezed through the narrow gap between it and the kerb and carried on.
Further on, when I had stopped to put on my smog mask in preparation for Boris's CS7 through south London, he pulled up alongside me and opened the bus door.
"If you want to take my name, it's difficult driving with people overtaking, I have to swerve and..."
At that point, I employed a phrase that I reserve for these situations:
"I'm not interested. Go away."
It's so much more time efficient than getting involved in stupid conversations when you're busy trying to get somewhere..
