Big vehicles have blind spots so idiot cyclists ride into them they have no road sense. Cyclists have every right to use the road so should be aware of others. Would it be right for pedestrians to walk on the road although they can but when they do they are careful and are aware of traffic around them. Cyclists should be this aware.
    When I cycle, I usually ride like a maniac. Blasting through red traffic lights, earphones in, riding through the middle of standstill traffic, riding the wrong way down one way roads, and sometimes no handed. I'm a good cyclist!
    No, you are NOT a good cyclist, just a deluded, and dangerous one, who doesn`t value your own, or anybody else`s life.

    And you give the really good cyclists, like myself, who obey ALL the traffic laws, and passed my cycling proficiency test at 11, a bad name.

    Got an explanation of how you got like that?
    It's just how I choose to cycle. It's a good adrenaline rush. Last year I was fined £50 for going through a red light. I just thought it was pretty funny though. As soon as the cops left I was literally going through red lights again. Nothing really stops me apart from death. I admit i'm a dangerous cyclist, but as long as i'm not harming myself or anyone else, what is the problem? I'm guilty too of not having lights in the dark. I mean I sometimes cycle safely. LIke I will use a right hand signal when turning left."
