When I meant ignore I meant if they say something stupid. Isn't it a driver that has a go at you bassically a bully and like what do you do when you get bullied. Ignore it or tell someone. You don't really confront them as that tends to make it worse. So why would you confront a driver about his actions?. Plus whenever I've ignored people they don't do anything afterwards. Because if you say something back it's bound to escalate as isn't that what road rage is? True I don't notice the fumes of the bus near me (But I don't know if that's because sometimes the drivers seem to switch there engine off for one minuite and then back on again.) But if the bus is blocking the view of the other lane to overtake I stay behind and wait because you don't want to cycle into oncoming traffic. and I agree with primary position or if the bus is. about to turn etc..
