the conditions. I hope he has fridge freezer insurance.

Cyclists can't afford insurance, or a car. That is why they ride a bicycle
in the ****ing down rain from their council flats to sign on the dole.
They are truly the dregs of society.

At least they get mobile on a bicycle, a very viable cheap form of
transport.

That is why they ride a bicycle


Of course. Thy wouldd not waste their meagre resources on a
fume-belching stinking cage.

Thanks greatly for the compliment coming from YOU.

I have no ****ing interest in looking good in YOUR eyes.
After all I ride a bicycle.
And we all know what YOU think of bicyclists. You think they are the
****witted pits of humanity.
And because it is YOU who think that, that is an extremely great
compliment.
We must be doing something right.

In any civilised country (*) the whole point of a bike lane is that a
collision between car and bicycle in such a lane is quite plainly the
driver's fault. The car even crosses a continuous section of line. The
only issue for the victim is that it is usually better to survive than
to be in the right.

(*) Don't know about Ireland but unlikely to apply to the UK: where the
main point of installing "cycle facilities" seems to be for councils to
get "sustainable transport" grants to give their workers something to do.

In any civilised country, the rule of the road is that traffic gives way
to traffic travelling in the same direction on its offside. It is what
leads to rules such as letting in overtaking traffic rather than
officiously budging up to prevent the move and refraining from
overtaking on the nearside.

The rule of the road is that when changing lane, you give way to anybody
in the lane you want to move into. Even in Britain it is permitted to
overtake on the inside in certain circumstances.

Like the driver in the clip you also don't seem to understand the
distinction between a solid and dotted line. If it is a bus lane next to
you you could end up far worse off than the driver in that clip.

It is what
leads to rules such as letting in overtaking traffic rather than
officiously budging up to prevent the move and refraining from
overtaking on the nearside.
