A FEMALE cyclist, not once but twice, rammed her cycle into my wing mirror in her attempts to pass on the inside as I was in a stationary line of traffic, much to the bemusement of the pedestrians on the pavement.
I hope I am never in such a rush to get to the front of the queue that I feel the need to barge into anything in my way to do so.
Whereas the bike just scratched my car, I would have damaged the bike considerably more if I made such an irresponsible manoeuvre.
This cyclist then sat at the traffic lights two cars ahead of me, probably calculating how much time she had saved.
I was pleasantly surprised that she did wait at the lights, as I fully expected her to disregard those too.
When I then overtook her, she had the decency to turn her head away from me. Before the cycling brigade start, I was at the unfortunate part of the road where there was a chicane, so I was not being obstructive, just abiding by the law of the road.
There are no excuses for deliberately damaging other people’s property.
