One such idiot thought it a good idea to pull straight across me today at a junction. Only the fact I was going at about 5mph saved him, I missed him by inches. Had I hit him, my car might have got a slight bump - he on the otherhand would likely be in hospital, if not worse. Complete moron.

You wouldn't be 'safe' in a little plastic hat Den. Unless it's a condom.

Perhaps the cyclist thought "who's this idiot driving at 5mph?" A circus parade could have pulled straight across you with no risk of collision .

Pavements are the most economically viable new shared space.

And people emerging through their garden gate then collide with the lunatic cyclist. Brilliant.

The Green Cross (Pavement) Code 2018

1. THINK! Remember, you are in a shared space designated area.
2. STOP! Stand near the edge of your gate but do not exit.
3. USE YOUR EYES AND EARS! Look all around for cyclists, and listen.
4. WAIT UNTIL IT'S SAFE TO EXIT! If a bicycle is coming, let it pass.
5. LOOK AND LISTEN! When it's safe, walk onto the pavement.
6. ARRIVE ALIVE! Keep looking and listening.
7. WEAR A HELMET! (optional) In case of falling trees, meteorites etc.

you just googled for the Green X (Pavement) Code 2018 didn't you? Sigh.

Like wearing a cycle helmet, participation is optional not compulsory.
