Love how all road users hate other road users.Been cycling recently. Been a real eye opener. But a few things recently have peeved me off.
- A pedestrian just walking out into cycle lane to cross the road without looking, despite me ringing my bell forcing me to stop from crashing into her. Tell her off and she just looks gormless and doesn’t apologise or acknowledge anything wrong. 😡
- A Jogger in cycle lanes, plugged in, running in a contra flow cycle Lane, I am cycling in. Not paying any attention despite me ringing bell.
And despite there being a pavement for them to run on right next to the cycle lane. Forces another cyclist behind me to overtake potentially into oncoming traffic.
- Drivers not fully stopping at Stop signs behind the line and instead across a cycle Lane to join the main road; forcing me to stop from colliding into the car and having a go at her. Another one who is oblivious to her doing anything wrong. 🤬
The joggers main mistake apart from not listening is not running in the opposite direction to the traffic flow. Which common as hell in both walkers/runners and drives me nuts as one. The key factor by being doing that not only can you move out the way you are protecting yourself by seeing traffic instead of being reliant on it seeing you. There are of course other factors for instance at corner or bends where you won't see oncoming traffic until its too late anyway but the key thing is forwards visibility coupled with your general visibility.
