Re: What is the worst road you've ever cycled on?

I must be the only person who cycles on Leith Walk.

Re: .........who I should vote for?

I was quite sceptical when you suggest vote match, but having gone through it and noting that it allows you to give weight to some issues and remove weight from others I became less sceptical, and it did in fact roughly reflect the order I would have placed the parties. Anyway, my vote is now cast. ...

Re: Abuse from motorists advice please

If you have a community policeman report it to him direct if you can. He might well know who it is and have a word, even if the account is uncorroborated, and thus unlikely to result in prosecution. Don't let bullys get away with it.

Re: Honest John

The sad thing is that in many JP courts Honest John might be right, regardless of the rights and wrongs as it were.

.........who I should vote for?

OK, I am in Scotland , so no local elections: just a Scotland wide PR vote returning 6 MEPs. So which of the political parties in the Scottish ward will do the most to promote sustainable transport and achieve a difference through their unstinting hard work at the European Parliament? I need to make...

Re: Cycle to Work Scheme

Sares, I'd be interested to know what the health and safety objections were and who the firm is. I have to do a talk on cycle safety soon (about how it's perceived as dangerous and that is stopping people taking it up) and examples like this would be helpful. I don't intend to nobble the firm in an...

Re: Traffic accident - rights & wrongs?

On the very limited information in the description I would say it is 50:50. However the cyclists version may well be different. The car driver has no idea where the cyclist came from. the cyclist will have a better idea of wehre they came from and where the car was relative to them! His evidence on ...
