Cyclists in the news
Thinking about this, the red light jumping etc etc.
I am starting to think there is a serious problem in London, not a cyclist/driver thing just a London thing. I know on the occasions i have had to drive in outer London no one seems to obey the laws. I also know when i am in north devon or at home in the Cotswolds the worst most aggressive drivers usually have some London phone number on the number plate.
I also know when i did the Dragon a few years ago the cyclists most likely to jump lights were Londoners.
I compare what i see day in day out at home, yes there are cyclists who jump red lights, ride on pavements, no lights, etc etc. But it isn't really that many, I have the odd run in with drivers but on the whole most drivers will give you room and on the commute to work the HGVs who pass me day in day out usually will wait behind and give ALOT of room when overtaking.
So is this a London problem, a big city thing or am living in a parallel universe????
