This morning, on my cycle commute i was sitting at lights in left hand lane, left foot on kerb. Only other car was in right hand lane looking to turn right. As soon as lights changed a VW golf coming from behind came flying through the space between me and the other car at what I'd guess was around 40mph (in a 30 zone). If i'd been 6" further out i'd have been injured (or worse) for sure.
So, red mist descends and i decide I'm going to have a "polite word" with the driver. Pedal like crazy and catch up with him at next lights, chap the window, he puts it down and I let rip with the full Ferguson style hairdryer treatment. Not really sure what i said exactly as I was so angry but he got the message.
Actually a bit embarrassed about losing it like that but he scared the absolute sh1t out of me and adrenaline took over.
So, was I wrong to approach him in the first place? I know i could have discussed it reasonably instead of berating him so that's a given. I'm not proud....
