... all stopped across a pedestrian crossing.

Who does the officious suit have a go at?

    None. But he slides across the bonnet of the car in true 70's cop show style?

    I always felt tempted to do that!

    Well, I was stopped behind the white line (the car and the motorbike had forced their ways past me!). I did point out that if he was going to have a go at the cyclist, he could have a go at all the others, too.

    Well cyclist is clearly the more approachable - but they are all twunts for doing it.

    Where more approachable == easy target.
    Smacks of just a bullying nature.

    All I can think is...."why would a cyclist stop at a pedestrian crossing?" :? :wink:
    You only need two tools: WD40 and Duck Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use the WD40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the tape.

    Just easier isnt it ? Bloke in a van - with his window up. Bloke on the motorbike with his helmet on. The cyclist is the one who he can talk to easiest.

    If you had these three same people and you needed directions - I'd ask the cyclist first ?
  • If everyone stopped why did he have a go at anyone? :?
    FCN 6 in the week on the shiny new single speed.

    FCN 3 at the weekend - struggling to do it justice!
  • Don't tell me it's because the cyclist is loitering on a pedestrian crossing?

    How many van drivers in London have their windows up?

    And the motorcyclist had his visor up, when I pointed out that he should be having a go at everyone else stopped across the pedestrian crossing, the look on the motorcyclists face was enough to know he coudl hear me perfectly well.

    It's just the whole unfairness of the attitude. Cyclists are reviled, even in situations where it's blatantly obvious that their flaws aren't unique to them.

    I did that in 1991, and ended up in hospital with a shattered kneecap :-D
