"I purposely run him over LOL"...

After the news two weeks ago that Emma Way was to face charges of driving without due care and attention and leaving the scene of a collision after her #bloodycyclists outburst on twitter, Daisy Abela seems to be treading a worryingly similar path after tweeting today that she intentionally ran over a cylist after an altercation.

It's been noted before that a disproportionate amount of the anger towards cyclists on twitter – as collated by the twitter account @cyclehatred – comes from young female drivers. There have been different theories put forward as to why this might be so; everything from a feeling of vulnerability to the simple fact of young females being over-represented on twitter. But once again it's a young female driver involved, this time seemingly admitting to deliberately running down a cyclist.

She also states in her timeline that she was "definitely still drunk" and of course that she hates cyclists.

The altercation seemingly cost her a wing mirror.

Emma Way's case was investigated by Norfolk Police after the cyclist, Toby Hockley, came forward to say he'd been knocked off his bike whilst taking part in a sportive. The tweet subsequently went viral, with Ms Way appearing on local radio and BBC breakfast television to apologise. For the tweet, we might add, not the incident or the attitude.

Daisy Abela seems to hail from near Bromley in Greater London. So if you were involved in an altercation with a female driver anywhere in that vicinity this morning, that ended with you being run down, it might be worth getting in touch with your local constabulary.

We had a young female driver in Manchester yesterday bragging on twitter how she likes to drive too close to cyclists to 'make them angry'.
Needless to say within minutes the cycling community descended on her hard, so much so she deleted her account within a couple of hours.
I dont think non-cyclists realise how pissed off we are about this and the twitter cycling community is getting pretty vociferous in its pursuit of these loons (even if the police arent)

If its a troll it is surprisingly well constructed and delivered. I'd check-back on the responders who may not have locked down their twitter accounts.

It powerfully shows how fast the twitter community can move to deal with issues like this.

She did say, prior to deleting, that "still drunk" was a "figure of speech". New one to me...

Lets hope if its Sussex police, then don't ask twitters opinion like I've just seen from one of their officers....

If you want to be truly shocked, go and look at some of the conversation's he is having around this memory card....

Well, at least one of her friends on Twitter seems to be an equally appalling driver:

It is remarkable how incredibly dumb some people are. Let's hope she'll be expecting a knock from the Police very shortly.

I despair, but am not surprised that it is another young woman.

I get pissed at drivers not giving enough room occasionally when they think they can get past, but to actually try and kill another human being? After all what do they think will happen if they deliberately hit a cyclist?

Bah, was in primary position on narrow road the other day. Middle aged woman barges past, gets stuck at pelican crossing after nearly failing to break for pedestrian. When questioned about why she passed unsafely and cut me off, she queries my primary position and says "you don't need that much room. I cycle more than I drive". There's no helping some people...

Yeah, some wingnut drivers on twitter should be locked up. Mostly seem to be kids under 24 or so.

Hope she gets what's due to her? Some people are born EVIL! Others have a bad upbringing (Lousy Parents) and are tought that they are the only important person in the world. That type are selfish and selfcentered; our lives don't matter to them; and they don't care (for anyone) whatever the consequences.

I honestly have no idea what relevance that had to anything....if he mentions her I fell asleep before I got there.

Hopefully the police will follow this up.

I think he posted it because Daisy leaves a comment on his video and he left a comment on her facebook page - shows that Daisy is probably a real person and not just a trolling account with a post intended to provoke a reaction

Give her a pass. Judging from her external appearance she is either mentally disabled or mentally unstable.

We don't know yet. But then, it was this sort of coverage that allowed the previous cyclist in the Way case to identify the halfwit.

Apparently the adult brain - particularly the part associated with decision making - doesn't fully develop until the age of 24, which explains why young adults tend to act foolishly.

There's definitely a case here for raising the age at which you can drive to 24, but then the government wouldn't make huge money in taxes from all those boy racers in their souped-up Corsas.

Woman referred to as "Hello Daisy" looks very similar to LH person on @Daisymerollin twitter account.

One wonders how they will cope when parental money dries up, or they become a serious embarassment. Those who have tracked Mary Beard threats might note that when one of the vast population who provide passive surveillance (better than any official agency trying it in covert or overt form) delivered a coup de grace by posting that he knew who the offender was, and knew his mother very well - result was far more effective than any court appearance and formal penalties.

So does anyone's company do business with Daisy's mum? Maybe suggest she has a quiet word with her daughter.

Having worked for a few years on cycle paths through some 'challenging' localities, I think I can comment that even the hardest of local tearaways can be focussed to deliver some really stunning creative works with plants and paint, if it will create a good impression with their granny.

Disgusting. Worse than Emma Way IMO - she's done it deliberately. Should be prosecuted as attempted murder.

Yep or Atleast GBH or assault. However she'll probably get a pat on the back from the judge !

The last tweet on here by daisy about appreciating what you have got may be quite prophetic!
