There are numpty push-bike riders, car drivers and motorcycle riders and its frightening how stupid some of these can be
There is a lack of responsibility placed on cyclists, like no insurance, no tax, no licence, but their actions can and do injure/kill people just like cars and motorbikes.
How many of them don't use lights (or adequate lights), hi-viz wear, break road laws etc?? The answer is a high proportion, but its always the motorists fault
I knew a guy that went to prison for 18mths because of a cyclists' own stupidity that resulted in the cyclist's death. To long and intricate a story to relay, but suffice to say that the conviction was eventually quashed but not before the guy had done his time for the cyclists' own stupidity. A living nightmare for him and his young family because some clown on a push-bike thought he had the right to be on the road doing what he wanted, when he wanted
By all means drive carefully and considerately towards all road users, but many cyclists need to take a good hard look at themselves, and their safety, and realise they are a road user like all the road users, but they don't have any more rights than any other road user.
