who said anything about scaring them? I drive past them in the same way I would a courteous rider, slowly, quietly and smoothly...I just might be swearing under my breath.....
Had the cyclist not run the red light, he would NOT have been hit regardless of weather the driver was texting or not. Unless of course the driver lost control of the car, swerved violently to the side and hit the cyclist while he was waiting at the junction. which seems a little unlikely.fact;the driver was paying no attention to the road
an accident which may well have been avoided.
Why should his family be ashamed:shake:No helmet and he jumped the red light. It's his fault. His family should be ashamed of themselves.
I've had a cyclist ride towards me on MY side of the road (alongside the pavement) in the DARK!! P**k was waving & shouting abuse at me for nearly hitting him & he didn't have any lights on either! It's always the driver's fault! :goingmad: :wallbang:had a green peace type cyclist on my bonnet of the van a couple of years ago,he was running a red light he was laid on the floor i got out he started mouthing at me ,i said to him if you didnt run the reds you wouldnt be on your arse you P£ICK got in the van drove off .i so hate cyclists .:wallbang:
