    I saw this, and thought it was an excellent idea. It's about time these bloody people got convicted for the abuse they hand out to traffic wardens.

    No-one else spotted that it was a cyclist doing the abusing??

    If you look at some of the internet comment pages, you will see that some posters regard this as entirely typical behaviour from cyclists. :biggrin:

    I found this news item rather troubling as the only stock footage available from the Wardens shows an altercation with an apparently recognised offender who happens to be riding a bike.

    I wonder if the man with the bike, I hesitate to call him a cyclist, is on a driving ban perhaps? Otherwise wouldn't an altercation with a motorist make more sense or even have greater impact using the Vidcam facility to expose the behaviours it was brought in to reduce.

    Very strange messages.

    starting on someone just doing their job is stupid and wants punishing

    I agree, I wonder how many of the people who abuse Traffic Wardens complain about the Yob Culture and Anti-Social behaviour?
