Racing on Public Roads

There is a local Half Marathon taking place today near my locale. Some people were moaning on a local Forum about roads being closed for the duration and I posted this -

"And they don't pay road tax or insurance, and think they own the road. I saw five of them the other day weaving in and out of pedestrians without wearing helmets or Hi-viz. They went through Red pedestrian lights without stopping. Bloody runners are a danger to themselves! They should be forced to pay road tax and wear a registration Plate on their backs so they can be legally identified and brought to book!
Oh, I forgot to mention runners should be required to pass some sort of test before being allowed out on Public roads"

Did I miss anything out?

All very amusing to other cyclists I'm sure but as none of the things mentioned are in any way relevant whatsoever I suspect all you achieved was to irritate any non cyclists [and there are a lot of them] even more. Well done.

Check for Motorists for the registration of pedestrians, you'll find they've beaten us to it already.

What did achieve, other than getting people's.backs up? The great British public love a good moan to the point that if theres nothing to moan about they'll moan about that instead. It's what happens, get over it.
