    Crikey, that's harsh policing they have in Devon! :ph34r:

    I love it when I do a safe, wide, courteous overtake on a cyclist. Aside from good roadcraft, safety and manners, I'm one of them too and maybe they'll return the favour to me, or pay it forward.

    Such warm feelings of smugness immediately vanish when I look in my mirror to see the Audi behind me then close pass them.

    Sadly I've got work to go to. ^_^
    Plus he parks very close to a junction that buses use all day so it would be just my luck for something to happen - how his car hasn't been clipped I've no idea...

    Not that I condone vandalism but who says it has to be accidentally done by a bus?

    Paint a bicycle on the side of his car and it won't be long before a bus side swipes it.

    I think similar answers were given to people moaning in the past about drunk drivers, age discrimination in the workplace, fly tipping, to name but a few outdate behaviors.
    You won't, others do stop riding or stop riding the roads, which in the UK restricts one's riding to no end.
