This morning on Holburn Viaduct/Newgate St. EC, heading East: WVM gets flashed through gap in traffic, into side street. I'm in cycle lane but he goes for it anyway (hell - I'm only a cyclist after all). I stop just in time, muttering something at him. He's done a U-turn to park up and takes offence at my muttering. He goes ape, every other word is f**k and basically says I should look where I'm going; he was turning right so it can't be his fault, etc. I point out there's two lanes, one for cars plus a cycle lane. More effing and blinding and I'm seriously annoyed by this ignorant git by now so I don't give in. As luck would have it he'd parked on double-yellows about 50 yards from Snow Hill police station. I pop in and ask the desk Sergeant if he can do anything. Just then a squad car arrives at the station and one of the PCs is asked to have a chat with me. I tell him what happened but WVM has disappeared down an alley with a delivery. Just as I'm giving a description he re-appears and just as he sees me I point at him and say, "that's him". The PC goes and has a long chat with him then returns to tell me that the WVM recounted the incident exactly as I had, so he wasn't hiding anything but really believed he had done no wrong. PC gave him a bollocking, explained highway code etc, that bicycles are vehicles and just cos you're flashed across etc., etc. So, result. Immediate bollocking for shitty driving. I felt a bit bad when the desk sergeant said he wasn't sure anyone would be available as there'd been a suicide in the Thames earlier that morning. S'pose it puts my moaning cyclist behaviour into perspective but I've had enough of drivers using abuse to cover for their crappy behaviour.
