I have a new HD video camera that is attached to my helmet. I film my rides so, should I get wiped out by some ignorant violent driver, I will have the evidence to sue them as well as making a criminal prosecution more likely to be successful.
Look at this monster truck moron pulling out onto Smith St last week. I’m riding in the left lane that is unusually empty of parked cars. When turning right onto a two lane street like this drivers should move into the right lane, which is closest to them. Instead, this one swerves over into the left lane and nearly wipes me off the road. I had to slow down to avoid them because they evidently didn’t care about my existence.
As the vehicle on the main part of the T junction I also had right of way, and the driver was required to give way to me, but s/he probably didn’t even see me. Cyclists, it’s time to hold drivers to account for their crimes. We have a right to health and safety on the roads.
The driver of black monster truck WOE 600 is a violent thug who took a swing at me with two tonnes of metal then overshot a red light and threatened pedestrians in a few seconds. This person does not deserve a driver’s licence. It’s a privilege and a responsibility, not a right.
