Lovely idea. But what is a the definition of an SUV?

However, crash test experts at Euro NCAP and Thatcham have hit
back at the suggestion, stating that whilst SUVs are generally
heavier, they 'do not necessarily present a greater threat to
pedestrian and cyclist safety'.

Based on tests with dummies...

...otherwise known as militant cyclists?

What's a militant cyclist?

Those that come blasting towards me on the footpath and tell me to
**** off when I obstruct them. Not one of the cowards has dared to
face me down.

Is your mobility scooter pavement legal and do you have insurance
for it?

Have you always been a prat?


Just answer the question.


I don't have one.
Please answer my question.


Have you stopped beating you wife?

Someone has given you an example.


Someone else's experience of the effect of deliberate provocation. Is
that the best you can manage?


Probably not. But I'm not descending into another of your silly downward
spirals. You are well aware of the existence of militant cyclists.
Saying or implying that they don't exist just makes you look siller.

As I said:

There are more [examples] of which you already are well aware, Polly.


Remind me (as a driver and pedestrian with a few years experience) about
some of the things I should have noticed on my travels by now.


If you aren't observant, that's not my fault.

Do you never read news reports either?

What's a militant cyclist?

Someone has given you an example.


Someone else's experience of the effect of deliberate provocation. Is
that the best you can manage?


Probably not. But I'm not descending into another of your silly downward
spirals.


Shrug. By all means stop your habit of changing the subject, twisting
meaning and putting loaded questions in your replies.

You are well aware of the existence of militant cyclists.


The dictionary has a definition for militant but you apply the label
subjectively.

Saying or implying that they don't exist just makes you look siller.


It is beyond you to stop twisting. Asking a question about something
does not say or imply the thing does not exist.

There are more [examples] of which you already are well aware, Polly.


Remind me (as a driver and pedestrian with a few years experience)
about some of the things I should have noticed on my travels by now.


If you aren't observant, that's not my fault.


Unobservant road users usually suffer consequences so your reply has a
logical flaw.

Do you never read news reports either?


I often look at the links in Mr Cheerful's posts, if that's what you
mean. You should have noticed this by the number of times I have flagged
them off topic.

That sounds about right.

Shrug. By all means stop your habit of changing the subject, twisting

You are well aware of the existence of militant cyclists.


The dictionary has a definition for militant but you apply the label

Such definitions are bound to be subjective.

Saying or implying that they don't exist just makes you look siller.


It is beyond you to stop twisting. Asking a question about something
does not say or imply the thing does not exist.


So we agree that the "militant cyclist" exists.

Excellent.

There are more [examples] of which you already are well aware, Polly.
