You've had a week, how about an interim report.


It has gone very quiet hasn't it?

You don't think the meeting only occurred in Masons fantasy do you?

I did not bother in the end.
It turned out that I would have had to cycle to Queen's Gardens in the city
centre at 1100, make a statement then as I was due to be at work for 1430
would have had to freeze my nuts off for two hours with best result that he
may get a ticking off, so I would have ended up more inconvenienced than he
would have been.

When I rang up to cancel, plod was most upset as he was a cyclist himself
and wanted to see if he could prosecute the driver.

Totally plausible, but I feel that your credibility has now cycled out
of the window.

Not to mention that you have let down the cycling cause big time, if you
have strong views about something, as you obviously have, then a few
frozen nuts should not put you off standing up for your principles.
Do you wear a woolly jock strap and undies while cycling in the winter?
NO we don't want a video as proof thanks...................

Dave has said "******" a bit extreme without proof, but I would
certainly say "WIMP" and you have provided evidence of that by your
own admission.

Yes of course he did.

Did you ask him how the three man investigation team were getting on?

Is there a prosecution imminent?

What if a major witness cries off as he does not want to go in the box himself?

Why should I have "bottled it"?
I can give you the incident log number if you wish and you can check
yourself with Humberside Police - in fact I will photocopy it when I
get home.
I simply could not be arsed. that's all.

"Not being arsed" to do anything about it is how the vast majority of
motorists (and probably also cyclists) feel about the daily incidents
and near-accidents they experience when out on their travels. It's a
sign of maturity, and shows you have a realistic view of the world. If
you are also starting to feel the same, then welcome to the grown-ups'
club.

I think someone is telling porkies here.

Tranby Lane to Queens Gdns is just 9 miles. At the speed you constantly
boast of, that's about 25 mins. So you wouldn't have needed to wait
around at all. You could have been back home in under half an hour.

What's that smell?
