I disagree with the word terrorise.I have never met anyone “terrified” or “terrorised” on the road.If someone is I suggest they need help in general to cope with society.
This Forum is getting more anti-car everyday.
No wonder “cyclists” are hated by the mainstream
I've had someone on a few of occasions try to terrorise me by deliberately trying to knock me off and similarly so on the tandem rendering Mrs R2 to tears,I've been brake checked,has missiles thrown at me from passing cars and on one occasion had a car drive along side me then slowly try to drive me into the kerb which led to fisticuffs,the driver came off worst.
I've also had WVM try to knock me off then tell me through an open window that he was going to kill me with his van.
These incidents along with a few more happened over a number of years and with no other reason than me being there.
I've also had quite a few incidents when driving that weren't as threatening only because I was in my car at the time.
I'm not by any means anti car,driving between 8k and 10k miles a year,but I am against morons who drive,which it seems is due to little chance of being caught and IMO is on the increase.
EDIT;just to add,IMOcyclists aren't hatred by the mainstream,they're hated by a minority of idiots who drive and by a minority of loud mouthed gutter press journalists who specialise in picking on minority groups the can't be prosecuted for victimising.
