    ....approaching keep left bollards when I heard a car approaching quickly behind me...was already in primary and wearing the brightest of yellow...no worries thought I, got to slow down, well they bloody well didn't so I dive for the curb, as a silver car screams passed at well above the 40 limit....on the other side of the keep left bollards....my bottom hole was going 50p,5p,50p,5p...and I was furious.......I don't like being scared lunless I choose to be scared!:laugh:



















    Yes I did get his index and have reported him to a very understanding police officer who has put a notice of intended prosecution in the post for due care and inconsiderate driving...took a statement too....:laugh:

    Glad your ok Vike,

    tbh tho your position as a PC puts you in a better position to get a result like that, some officers don't take the general cycling public seriously.

    Right. We need a friendly member of the police on here from every force in the country. How do we go about sorting that out?!:laugh:

    Summer I tend to try to remeber them as I ride, even cars that I don't have an issue with.....Although I only had to remember this one for two minutes before I was on the phone to PNC

    It helps that Vike's "one of them". :laugh:

    Well done, Vike.. let's hope the ar$ehole gets a nice shock (him, not yours... unless you're into that sort of thing).
