I was riding into work taking it easy as i've had a bad knee. There are loads of cyclists on my route, so why is it that about 5 taxis over took me forgetting they have wing mirrors.
Didn't get hit, but definitely made me nervous.

because they never use them :biggrin:

I think with some taxi drivers they've got an overconfidence in their ability and consider they can judge the exact distance to pass things by inches :smile: if they don't make contact its all right :rolleyes: :biggrin:

You're being very rude, Bella. If someone offers you a wing mirror, you're supposed to take it. If you don't need it, just discreetly dispose of it later, or hide it in your napkin.:thumbsup:
