I don't have much faith at all in dangerous drivers getting caught. A car drove straight at me a couple of weeks ago because he pulled out of a junction whilst he was rummaging on his dashboard for something. Despite the fact the guy was driving dangerously, it was only my fast reactions that stopped me being run down and I got his car details as he drove off, the police did absolutely nothing about it. They said they had no witnesses but they didn't even bother to check. The car was a taxi and I caught it's number on the back as it drove off. The police never even bothered to check to see if the taxi had had a passenger in it who would have seen everything Surprise

I swear we should hold a critical mass thing and bring London to a halt etc to raise awareness for cyclists!

I'm sick to death reading about sorry I didn't see drivers! (Yes accidents happen-statistically the odds are there; but maybe we could reduce it).

Of course it's impossible to say, but it's odds-on that one or more of the following were true: the driver was driving under the influence; uninsured; unlicenced; no MOT; or had an outstanding warrant.
