    Tbh, they way they're going about it they'll get their head kicked in at some point.

    Years ago I was very nearly ripped out the car by four angry blokes after highlighting their bad driving and lane discipline on a roundabout (i effectively undertook them on a roundabout which wouldnt have been possible had they been in the correct lane, but because they werent they had to take evasive action after nearly going into the side of me when trying to cut back into the proper lane at the last second), and i had the benefit of doors with locks...

    What a waste of money cycle lanes are, they've nicked them from the normal road and ive seen some 3ft long WTF?? cars can park in them so they are utterly pointless..
    The roads are there for everybody, so a little care and patience wont kill, will it? Agreed some of the professional looking ones seem to have a chip on there shoulders....

    By the way my pet hate is spilling beer on the mrs Chihuahuas (if she sees me)as they are always under your feet....

    I think the camera on your helmet saved you from getting decked by that driver, he looked mad.

    By the way what camera/mic do you use?

    Not clear that trying get run over by someone pulling out without looking was deliberate. Not something you'd set out to do. The Bristol traffic site is more of a documentary, and will quite happily cover someone driving up the inside of a bus
    Bristol Traffic: Respect buses
    or comparing people driving through junctions on the phone vs blocking them while eating your breakfast and by not looking to either side pretending that you aren't there. Hatched Yellow Lines on junctions! They're only a hint
    Bristol Traffic: Correct junction tactics
    and for fairness, people on bicycles going the wrong way down a 1 in 4 hill where if someone had pulled out it would be game over and the video would be used at the inquest to say "they chose to die"
    Bristol Traffic: Downhiller Commitment on Marlborough Hill

    1. It's a useless lane, you use it and you get left hooked by anyone turning left or squashed between the drivers pulling out without looking and anyone trying to get past. That means you are right: it is a waste of money. Why did it go in? Probably so some road designer could draw a pretty line on a map saying "oh look, we have painted a bike lane here" and drive home proud, as the alternative "I just wasted a week and money putting in a useless bit of paint on a road" would mean they have to admit their life is meaningless. So yes, it is a joke. Just not a funny one. And we all pay for it, one way or another.

    2. Ignoring the whether bikes pay to be on the road issue, all class-A cars pay £0 VED as do many disabled drivers. The latter get to park where they like too, ignoring the rule that says "don't hold anyone up whenever you park". Yet they do, don't they?

    that was a ContourHD. very popular with motorbikers though you do run the risk of creating evidence that can be used against you regarding speeding tickets. Fit it when you head off to France to do the Alps in a weekend.
