There's a killer on the road

And he’s talking on his phone.

The comment I left on the MEN’s news item about the crackdown on drivers using phones in their cars

A couple of weeks ago I was nearly flattened by a driver who sailed through a red traffic light whilst talking on his phone. He stopped at the next set of traffic lights, so I cycled after him, bashed on his window and uttered a few choice words about his idiocy.

He ignored me, of course. As the phone call was so important he’d risk killing people for it, he wasn’t going to let an irate cyclist put an end to it.

I should have used my phone to photograph his car and post the picture to my website to shame him.
