Yesterday I was hit by a car and the car drove off without exchanging details.
Happily it was a low speed impact; I was stationary and the driver turned across me, going into my rear wheel - I didn't even fall off the bike, but the wheel is trashed.
The driver looked at me, looked at the bike, and calmly drove off.
I've got his plates, and I've got a witness.
An anti-cyclist Adam is asked to ditch his car and travel to work by bike for a whole week.
It's amazing how people seem to ignore cyclists; he nearly runs 2 of them over.

It has taken a while but I'm pleased to report a small legal success for one cyclist (me).
Nearly two years ago while on a visit back to London I was cycling back from Clapham Junction when I was cut up by a bus. Classic thing - coming up to a bus stop and rather than wait behind for two seconds he comes around but doesn't get past, sandwiching me between bus and kerb. Thanks god there were no railings or I'd have been in real trouble.
