Cy­clists face more and more dan­ger

Solihull News - - LETTERS & EMAILS -

AS a reg­u­lar cy­clist, the dan­gers from some ar­ro­gant and self­ish mo­torists just gets worse.

Cross­roads and mini round­abouts be­come red alert zones; some driv­ers are just obliv­i­ous to other road users’ needs.

I had to al­low a car to turn close in front of me re­cently – the fe­male driver was shame­lessly va­p­ing while steer­ing. As for the driv­ers who use their mo­bile phones at the wheel – catch­ing and pun­ish­ing them is vir­tu­ally im­pos­si­ble.

There is a new game in town. It is called spot the Po­lice Of­fi­cer. You could go all day not ob­serv­ing one - hence giv­ing mo­tor ve­hi­cle users a free reign to break the law at will.

Vir­tu­ally ev­ery day on the road I will en­counter some threat­en­ing move from a mo­tor ve­hi­cle. Brett Dixon, Pres­i­dent, The As­so­ci­a­tion of Per­sonal In­jury Lawyers
