Awwww, poor little drivers

Every month or so some motoring journo or opinion piece hack will rail against the bad behaviour of cyclists because once or twice a week they see one edge through a red light or mount the pavement.  It’s rare to read something like this piece, which highlights the far more dangerous and numerous sins of motorists and gives them the rhetorical slap they deserve for their fake victim culture.

And it’s in The Times, which publishes Clarkson’s whining in its Sunday edition, which makes it even more impressive.

    To be fair, so do I, and I’m a cyclist who doesn’t own a car.

    It’s a good article (in The Times? Surely not!), but certain self-righteous cyclists who think rules don’t apply to them annoy me just as much; maybe more, as their behaviour reflects on me.

  2. Pavement riders piss me off as well, but not as much as the sort of hypocritical journalists and interest groups David Aaronovitch takes issue with in his article. They can’t keep their own constituents from breaking the law, yet complain about lesser offences by others.

    We should do what we can to teach other riders not to be anti social, but the driving lobby should shut up until they’ve run a few campaigns to remind drivers to slow down on amber, stop running red lights, stay out of the cycle lane etc., etc.
