Hit By Car At Goodmayes

This morning I was hit by this driver who was so determined to prevent another from overtaking them that they didn't appear to notice that the mirror on their car had been smashed back at it struck my handlebar. There was some reluctance to stop and talk about it, even though they were now stuck in the traffic jam (10 feet up the road). Apparently she "didn't realise" as she was trying to watch both of us. Very poor driving from one who looked like she should have known better. Watch though and see how even after hitting me she continues to position her car to block the othe driver. What did she gain from all this? Nothing. Well, perhaps (hopefully) a broken mirror...

Cyclist Hit by Impatient Driver RX06 ZXV RX06ZXV
Report on Stop SMIDSY here: http://www.stop-smidsy.org.uk/incident/2810 I was originally worried by the first car in the clip due to them being not properly in the lane and slower driving. But as I was cycling up this stretch of road that is barely wide enough for two cars and on a blind corner, the driver of the Polo decides to try an overtake. He came out of nowhere and at some speed, despite me holding the strongest possible road position (allowing room for oncoming traffic). To avoid colliding with the silver Land Rover, they instead drive at me and force me into the kerb. The sound you can hear is the sound of the car hitting my body. The Land Rover driver sounds his horn, clearly startled as well. The car then drives off without stopping, I was too shocked to shout after them. No damage to the bike. The polo is not registered on the Motor Insurance Database. Volkswagen VW Polo, Black RX06 ZXV RX06ZXV

V776 EEF Gets Upset When Overtaken By A Cyclist
Please note that I realise that I called out an incorrect number plate on the video. It was only after viewing the footage that I discovered the mistake. The correct number plate has been posted in the title and tags. The dustmen were out this morning, so there was a bit of a queue on a usually pretty empty road. This young driver got caught napping it seems when I overtook him and then went on to pass the dustcart. He immediately showed his displeasure by revving up and driving close to my back wheel, even though I was keeping pace with traffic ahead and there was no room for him to pass anyway. As I moved back into the left lane after the dustcart, he made an aggressive move left, despite the brake lights clearly showing on the car ahead of me. I gave an open-handed slap on the back of his car to remind him that I was there and this seemed to infuriate him. Horn blasting he undertakes me, I'm going straight at the mini roundabout, so was riding in the right-hand approach lane as the left-hand lane is left turn only. We debate the matter and when it finally dawns on him that I'm filming him he drives off.
