Sorry but thats a stupid comment Chris, many are drivers and many do, the odd ones don't, and that doesn't mean what that driver did was excusable even if Madyak wasn't a driver!
Recent news articles would suggest that my comments are far from ‘stupid’ (thank you for that).
It has been reported that Cyclists regularly disobey the Highway Code for their own reasons, alfaspence’s immediate confession, confirms this point.
If we (as motorists) do something similar, we are spotted, our number plates recorded (remotely, by camera, in many cases) and we are fined .
If cyclists were identifiable and accountable then motorists may, (may) be better behaved towards them.
Identification could be through road tax and/or a ‘plate’.
This is a general comment and not specific to the poster. If madyak wishes to escalate a dangerous incident by banging on a car window then….fine, however, he could have taken the number (because he can) and reported the incident where I’m sure the motorist would have been heavily fined – with points – we always are.
