Gotta admit some cyclist do need there heads chewed off from time to time as some give a lot of other cyclist a bad name due to there lack of inconcieration of the road rules.
I have forgot how many times i have had to slam the brakes on because of a cyclist not stopping at junctions, iter-sections and traffic lights also riding in the middle of the road up in the hills holding up all the traffic, Not sticking to the cycle lanes the list go's on and on.
I always give cyclist at least 1 metre distance when passing them just like the law says to do but then you get some cyclist that still verbally abuse drivers because thay think 1 metre is not enough.
I can understand some drivers attitudes towards cyclist due to the bad inconsiderate cyclist giving the others cyclist a bad name.
Most of the cyclist i meet on the road are very good but then again just like this morning a cyclist shot through a redlight and i had to blow my horn at them and slam the brakes on to which the cyclist gave me a load of verbal and insisted that as he is on a bike and therefore i should give way to him.
Have you ever tried stopping 20 tonnes of artic bus at 60kph in a very short space without damaging passengers.
As i said i have nothing against cyclist but just like some drivers as well, a lot of them should learn the road rules and have a bit more understanding and consieration to other road users.
