Attitude of the driver was not ideal from the start, however the cyclist really hasn't helped himself...

Is the idiot going rear over tit restorative justice?

OscarWhiskeyEchoNovember,The cyclist seemed to me to be "making good progress" as he rounded the first corner into the one way street, whether or not he saw the car to his left as he did so is anyone's guess. Not sure whether or not if  his bike had mirrors but if it did he was not using them or he would have seen that the car behind was making to overtake him.maybe he should have slowed a bit  and moved to the near side for it to pass quickly and safely, the car driver was only required to give the cycle the same amount of clearance as he would any car he was passing.It looked  to me as though he could have cycled a bit closer to the parked  cars judging by his position in the road as he went over the repaired patch in the road. The car driver could possibly have given him just a bit more room,but had to come over to go between the parked cars either side of the road just a bit further on, but had to give the cyclist clearance as well, as I say he was not hanging about! But then neither was the car given the location. So at that stage it could be said to be six of one and half a dozen of the other.

 The cyclist was determined to make an issue of it.maybe he had been cut up on previous occasions, hence the camera,s. This a classic case of that box that they used to talk about in training and maybe they still are, (I just forget the name of the chap who talked about it).  It was about how  an aggressive action is sure to bring about an almost immediate aggressive response, etc , and before you know where you are you could be rolling around on the pavement. (If you are in the police cadets it's well worth having a look at! Ask your trainer what it's called) I would say that the driver initially didn't want to get into an argument with this cyclist because it seemed that he was going to park up but as he saw the cyclist approaching drove off again to avoid him.i think the cyclist totally misread the body language of the motorist when he first started to converse with him, and to be honest could have chosen his words more wisely.He was lucky the motorist didn't give him a fourpenny one later on when he clearly started to wind him up about his seat belt which had no bearing on the case.

 So to sum up if I was sat on the bench watching this video on the big screens in court and deciding if there was case to answer re the motorist driving without due care or whatever, I would be saying that it was not proved.Sorry if this is all a bit long winded but you did ask.(smiley face here with the white teeth here) what's your take on it all? I haven't been on a bike since I was about sixteen and I got a moped,  my dad didn't like me riding it that much either, in fact he insisted I wore a helmet, a bit like the ones they wore at the TT races in the fifties.Rich.

Betari's Box, Rich Not taught as part of the standard training input but is on the supervisors course in TVP.

Its police related as there may well be offences but whilst no police are featured in this video I think it is certainly one to watch ... THE VERY END IS HILARIOUS

Adamski,Thanks for that, it's all coming back to me,I think our new specials do get it taught still when I think about it. Incidentally , re this angry cyclist, I was going to say something about the fact he wasn't wearing a safety helmet apparently,(but thought I had gone on long enough)do you remember Enoch Powells intervention speech against the introduction of the law requiring the wearing of helmets by motorcyclists, it was in seventy three so I suppose not many will remember it,he made a lot of very good cases for not wearing them,nothing much has happened for pedal cyclists, should they have to wear them?

Betari's box is taught as cop training in lancs.

cyclist escalated it all on his smug, self-righteous own...

To be fair, the cyclist could've, and in my opinion should've, moved over into the long gap between parked cars instead of impeding the driver. The driver is obviously at fault, but it's a little annoying watching the cyclist obviously try to provoke a reaction out a short tempered man for youtube views.

The drive was an absolute rear, but the cyclist brought it all on by perusing him after an alleged aggreivance.

self-righteous cyclist nearly takes a kicking...

 

edit, it, persuing, not perusing...

Driver has massive issues, but they are all brought on by the self-righteous cyclist chasing him down for a perceived issue.

cyclists like this who post similar videos on Facebook seem to have a massive problem with drivers, and it may get them hurt or worse for the sake of trying to embarrass someone who really doesn't care...

That gave me the best laugh I've had in a while. Brilliant!

While i do see this as a little bit of the bloke getting what he deserved, the cyclist definitely aggravated the situation when he didn't need to. The bloke falling over (albeit from his own doing) could have seriously injured himself.
