Side swiped

Went up to London today, unfortunately my camera threw a wobbly and didn't record the the following.

Cyclist in front of me nearly gets left hooked by a motorist trying to cross a couple of lanes.
In the same instance I get a close pass by a black Ferrari Enzo with me calling the driver by their favourite pass time.
To top it all off I get a driver from Arriva buses who is a bit too impatient to get to the bus stop on London Bridge that I end up getting side swiped. For this I really wish I did have my camera working and that I took down the bus details. Instead I gave him the hand sign suggesting that he plays with him self a lot. Unfortunately with out the details I can't really report him, which is a shame.
 
A typical day of London driving :tongue:

Glad you didn't get taken out by the bus.

No. It would be strong if you were an athiest. An agnostic is simply waiting for proof of god. B)

Matthames, Its like I say about London, its like the Wild West when it comes to the roads.
 
Some buses are good but there seems to be a huge variation....Overtake and dive into the bus stop ahead is the norm.....It almost reminds me of a plane dive bombing.

One bus driver the other day hung behind me all the way to the lights in Leyton and I still caught the traffic.Now that is rarer than winning the lottery.(The bus sticking behind I mean...not catching the traffic)

I am probably more used to buses sticking behind before reaching a stop. So big up Stagecoach Hastings for training their drivers well :tongue:
