Only if SWMBO wasn't there, because she always gives me earache for
having a go at someone.

Simple. The driver posting the rubbish back through the window was
bigger and had a bigger vehicle. Some claim that only cyclists use this
technique.

Looking at the whole clip, it is interesting to see how many people seem
to think that the art of avoiding an accident involves using the horn to
scream "get out of the way because I'm not going to stop". Interesting
because some posters have come here to suggest that drivers are
qualified because they have been trained. I'm really behind the times if
this technique is part of the test.

Indeed. If a cyclist did this to a 'law abiding' motorist, the 'law abiding' motorists's response would be "I'll ****ing run you over", which is illegal and could lead to life in prison.

My sentiments exactly, if you have time to sound the horn you have time to avoid the incident.

Eh, imprison a driver for running down a cyclist? I must have missed
something.

I was thinking about all the stories the moronist faction drag up about
"typical cyclists" doing things drivers never do.
