Normally, I find truck drivers to be among the better, more mannerly drivers on the road. They rarely push past or do other stupid things. As a result, if I’m on the bike I’ll try and let them past if I can. This morning however, my mate and I were cycling down a long, speedy suburban road with the usual complement of islands, bollards and parked cars. A stupid trucker started to overtake when far too close to the next island and had to pull in too soon, forcing Tim and I into emergency braking to avoid either hitting the parked car ahead or being crushed under the truck's rear wheels. I knew I’d catch him at the next junction, so – CAMERAPHONE at the ready! Pulled up just in front, made damn sure he noticed me “photographing” his face and the reg number, looked at my watch, gave him a nod and took great delight in the mixture of anger, confusion and worry that played over his face. He then made a gesture to his head as if to say “Why aren’t you wearing a helmet?”. Because a helmet is really going to help me when a 40-footer drives over me, isn’t it? Funny. Needless to say, I didn’t even bother really taking a picture.
