I take it that you think knocking a cyclist off his bike and possibly
causing him/her serious injury or death is a reasoned response?

if it happened then it is unreasonable. I have noticed that cyclists
are seasoned liars and will even invent crashes and crimes to cover
their own stupidity.


And car drivers always tell the truth, huh?

I am reminded of a woman I worked with who used to cycle from Buxton to
Stockport every single day, rain, snow or shine. Until one day someone
drove into her and ruined her health for the rest of her days. She was
going through a green light and the car driver crashed a red. Needless
to say, that wasn't the tale that the car driver gave to the police.
Guess who the police believed.



the one that was most likely/provably telling the truth


Hmmm.... you really are a sick puppy, aren't you? I wonder what it would
actually take to get you off the case of cyclists? Presumably their
extermination.

Which all goes to convince me even more that a camera on my crash helmet
is an essential tool that every cyclist should have. Such behaviour by
car drivers should lead, inevitably, to prosecution and a substantial
ban.


A disqualification from driving for a physical assault with the fists?

Would you extend it to all crimes, or just those alleged to have been
committed against cyclists?

Would you, for instance, impose a "substantial ban" (from driving) for
criminal damage committed by someone damaging a car with a cycle-lock?
Or by hurling a bicycle onto a vehicle's bonnet?

And if not, why not?


Probably just those where a motorist has used his vehicle as a deadly
weapon in a deliberate manner.


Thank you for confirming that you would impose a "substantial ban" (from
driving) for criminal damage committed by someone damaging a car with a
cycle-lock or by hurling a bicycle onto a vehicle's bonnet, as long as
the criminal cyclist had a driving licence.

Of course, a disqualification would have little effect on someone
without a licence.

Was that before or after you woke up and found a wet patch on the mattress?

I wonder if the people who knew the car driver believed his story over
the
woman's.

Did she tell you the true story - or was if from an independent witness.

Glug, glug.


Jimdeth, since motorists commonly leave cyclists for dead in the gutter
I would tend to believe the cyclist.


Commonly, eh?

I can't remember the last time I left a cyclist for dead in the gutter.

I strongly suspect that there is information missing from that story.

Nobody reacts that way to someone just shaking his head.


You think? Your life experience has been a bit limited.

Thank you for your crackpot interpretation of this news report,


psychiatric help is available.




Are you going to volunteer to be a witness? Psycholists stick together

remember. You all follow the same religion. You are all one.


Oh, you are a one!

By a strange coincidence I can't remember you ever posting anything
sensible.
