    You can get equestrian vests that say "Please pass slow and wide"

    A friend of mine said he'd need a full stop. "Please pass. Slow and Wide."

    You've got one of those POLITE ones, haven't you Arch? (or did I imagine that?). How well does that work out?

    I have.

    I'm not sure. A large number of vehicles do still pass closely, but I don't know whether it's because:

    a) They have time to see that it's not actually Police (quite possible in queueing traffic).
    :biggrin: They don't notice the word at all (or me, even!)
    c) They don't care whether it's Police or not. Which is kind of the most worrying, because that would mean they don't think they are doing anything wrong.

    On the other hand, when cars do give me plenty of room, would they have done it anyway?

    So it's hard to tell. I think, on balance, there are times it helps, but it's not been as clear cut as I thought it might be.

    I urge you not put it in these terms in you statement to the police. It will only make the situation worse. :biggrin:

    How about "How's my cycling? Phone 0800-CYCLECHAT"
    Or, "If you can read this, you're too close"
    Or, "Honk if you like lycra"
    :biggrin:
