When is it "obvious" that the lights are not going to change?

On what basis does a cyclist make such a decision to pass through red
traffic lights with a ready-made excuse?

I take it that nether you now mason can find the legislation which
you say allows cyclists to pass red traffic lights lawfully, because
had to been able to cite it, you'd have done so.

Nobody has ever claimed such a thing exists.

Mason did.

Have another read of his ramblings on the subject.

I daresay Mason's hamster has more common sense than you.


You're still smarting over that one, aren't you?

A raw nerve touched, obviously.

On the other hand, you are unable to prove your assertion that law
can magically conjure things from nothing or switch something from
safe to unsafe or unsafe to safe.

You are lying (yet again).

I have made no such assertion.

It simply *isn't* up to you to judge that you are free to break the
law because you don't care about the danger which may be caused by
it. You are not qualified to make such decisions.

Oh look, you have just made the assertion again.


Nonsense (though that is your default output format).

If you "think" it IS up to you to judge other people (especially
people of whom you know nothing other than a few semi-literate
scribblings by a road.cc "journalist") and if you "think" that you
have the qualifications for doing so, please explain your reasons for
"thinking" it.


Bloody hell ! This is rich - coming from you.


Perhaps you can point to any example of my ever arguing that a
particular person should have been convicted of dangerous driving - or
anything else?

Or perhaps you can't.

You'll find plenty of examples from TMs, though.

When you left home in the morning but it's now starting to get dark.

So you've given up trying to claim that traffic lights don't apply to
cyclists.

Thank goodness for small mercies.
