There has been an update to the original outburst from this blogger, clearing a few things up, good on her I say. Her comments were completely out of order and to say I took them to seriously, well I did take them very seriously as I have almost daily incidents where I nearly get knocked off by motorists trying to make it to their destination a few seconds quicker.

Anyway all done and dusted now, and hopefully we have a motorist with a new found love of bicycle safety

I noticed that she didn’t publish my comment on her ‘humble’ post. Here’s a comment I made on her ‘clearing the air’ post, just in case she decides not to publish it:

———————————

You’re surprised that people took your post too seriously? How naive you must be. There are people out there who actually hate cyclists and seem to want them dead.

Wire ‘traps’ set on cycle paths – 2004

Wire found tied across cycle ways – 2007

I know cyclists who have been spat on, had stones, glass bottles etc. thrown at them by car drivers/passengers. One was permanently blinded in one eye after being hit by a glass bottle.

I know of people who have been deliberately hit by morotists who were too impatient to wait for the cyclist to get past some parked cars on a narrow street, then threatened with deportation for retaliating against the motorist; cyclists who have been shot at with air rifles while riding home on cycle paths; cyclists who have been hit and left with serious spinal injuries by a driver who then drove off and left the cyclist in the road.

When cyclists are hit and seriously injured or killed by a negligent, dangerous or drunk driver, there is rarely a shred of responsibility placed on the driver in terms of punishment. Most drivers get away with a small fine and a few points on their license. Custodial sentences are rare. The price of a cyclist’s life is as low as a few hundred pounds.

And you were surprised at people’s reaction when you posted a hateful anti-cyclist rant which ended with words to the effect of “I think if a driver accidentally hits a cyclist it should be the cyclist’s fault.
