    I once saw that happen in Canada. A bicyclist banged on the hood of a car. Right away you could see the car driver take a hard right and cut off another car so he could force himself into the lane and chase the bike which had already turned a corner down a one way, 4 lane street.

    The car over takes the bike and trys to cut him off into the curb on the left, the guy jumps out of his car, big guy in leather jacket. Bike goes around the car and keeps going. Leather jacket jumps back in his car and over takes the bike again, we're following behind lol.

    Guy jumps out of his car, runs at the bike that was again trying to go around him and lifts him right off the bike while he's pedaling his bike, LOL, never saw what happened after that.

    I thought they were both quite civil. Quite civil indeed.

    I love London.

    Had we paid our taxes we might have continued to be as civil.

    they were being very civil. that conversation would have been very different in the streets of NYC.

    Is it normal for cyclists to have a camera installed in their helmets? Just in case they get into accidents I guess, since you are bound to get into an accident if you cycle on the road for long?

    Would have ended up with one of them brandishing a knife.

    2: Driver slams the horn
    3: Civil conversation ensues
    4: Hands are shaken

    Didn't have the sound on so all I saw was a punk kid driving an Audi. Told me all I needed to know.

    Having a bus lane the same as a bike lane is kinda silly IMO

    I say, old chap, the manner in which you are operating your automobile is really quite sub-par.
