    Almost got flattened by a Sainsbury's truck on the way home tonight, stupid driver went blatantly through a red light and almost collided with myself, a taxi and a H91 bus. When aforementioned vehicles beeped at him, the neanderthal driver shouted to me "F@@@ off, you F@@@ing gay C@@@"

    Not sure why he directed his abuse towards me, but I have his reg. so I intended to lodge a complaint with his bosses.

    Bad luck there, YG.
    There should be a tel number on the back of their trucks. One of those 'how's my driving?' stickers. Give them a buzz. Their website's got some useful links, too.
     
  7. Did you speak to the taxi and bus drivers about it? Maybe three complaints would be more effective than one.

    Report it to Sainsbury. If you know where & when it happened they may well be able to identify the driver from route taken. If you managed to get a registration number, so much the better. With a bit of luck, the driver will be sacked. At the least it should be put on file against him...

    That's my intention anyway. Rather ironic though 'cos on the back of the truck was one of those beware cyclist stickers.
