    Regulator Treachery is noble when aimed at tyranny.

    Hmmm - the first one I'd report.

    The second... I'd just point out that you crossed the junction outside the crossing. Not unlawful - but a bit daft.

    First one - there is no point reporting it, the Police don't give a damn, just like the drivers don't. TBH, instead of wasting paper and my time filling in a form that just gets chucked in the bin, I would speak to a local CPSO or not waste my time.

    I confess I would have carried on cycling in the first clip and kicked her car on the way past, or cycled into the side on purpose. After all, if It was a car It'd hit the stupid bint.

    Now that's interesting that both your first video with the car pulling out and the video that Jacomus posted in response, also with a car just pulling out both the car drivers are women!
    I've noticed that a large number of women seem to have trouble seeing other road users at junctions. I've had 2 near misses and 1 hit at mini roundabouts that have been caused by women just pulling out in front of my bus as I'm turning right. The last one was just gobsmacking, 14ft high 8ft wide bus with head lights on, indicating right in broad daylight, as bus is halfway across roundabout woman aged about mid 50s decides she's going straight on without looking. BANG!
    I was lucky I had 10 tons of metal and fibre glass to protect me, although I did suffer whip lash. If she'd done that to a cyclist she's have probably wiped them out!

    I'm pretty sure that the Volvo driver that took Bollo out by turning right across him was a man.

    Not saying its always women, just seems to be a lot of women do it. The worst accident I was involved in (not my fault) was caused by a man.

    All of the cars that have pulled out straight into me on the roundabout outside work have been women. Usually once ever week or so. They all seem to be too busy talking to their passengers and not looking where they're going. Not one has checked whether they are clear to pull out before doing so.

    Mainly young, too.

    Then again, the stupidly close overtakes and near left-hooks have all been men...

    Perhaps there's a pattern to this ? ;)
