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...

This mercedes driver could not wait just a couple of seconds as the road
narrows, he had to squeeze in front of me. Who knows why...?
Car Runs over bicycle At Critical Mass ride
Thanks for subscribing!
In March 2007, a car is seen apparently crossing over the island median,
entering in the middle of the mass of bicycles participating in the
critical mass ride. The car proceeds to follow a bicycle. and then hits the
bicycle and runs over the bicycle and a couple more. At least a few
bicycles were damaged. There may be some physical injuries to some of the
bicyclists, skaters, and pedestrians in the area, that were hit be the
Car drives into stationary cyclist - AP62AYW - With Police response
AP62AYW blocks both the "bike box" and a bus coming round the corner,
before driving into me while the lights are red and I'm stationary. He then
continues to block another bus and not care at all that he's run into me.
This is the first incident on my channel that I've reported to the local
constabulary as I have concerns that he should probably not be on the road.
NB. I drove slightly past the stop line so that I could indicate to the
driver that the buses could get past if he reversed back a bit.
I got the following message from the Norfolk constabulary:
"The contents of your email and the Youtube footage have been reviewed by
both our Legal Services department and Road Policing Inspector.
We thank you for bringing it to our attention but a decision has been made
that in this case we would take no further action.
This is down to the following reasons:-
· The weather conditions making it difficult for the driver to see
· Neither party comply to road traffic regulations in relation to stopping
at the line for the red light
· At a damage only incident of this nature parties would deal via their
· Due to the amount of people including yourself rallying around the
driver and possible public order offences the driver would have reasonable
excuse not to engage with you.
We are also unable to assess the fitness of the driver without a
breath-test or FIT test being carried out at the time which would have to
be presented as evidence in a court of law. "
Well at least they looked at it. I'll have to try to remain calmer next
time someone drives into me. Hope he doesn't accidentally kill someone.

SUV driver, crowding cyclist, almost hits oncoming car, then rages at cyclist.
[short version posted to get to the point a bit quicker.]
Helmet video camera used: ION Air Pro HD.
On Friday, 11 January 2013, the driver of a black 2009--2013 Dodge Journey
SUV, Ontario BMSA-688, races to rush past a cyclist on a two-lane side
street, as both are approaching a red traffic light. Cyclist, unaware there
was an SUV behind her, was adhering to the Ontario Highway Traffic Act rule
for two-lane roads (at least 1m from the right-most barrier, such as a cub
or a wall of parked cars), as explained in §147 and §148.
Despite extremely limited passing room, driver insisted on rushing ahead
(and did so) with no initial comment from me. As I rode by the now-stopped
Journey, the driver gave me a disgusted expression and said something
After I stopped, I asked the driver if she was in a rush and mentioned the
HTA, §147. She spoke further words, also inaudible. She then gesticulated
for me to "get in front of her car" (because as a vehicle, I guess she
believed I'm not permitted to ride on her right and pass her in so doing).
So I dismounted my bike, moved it to in front of her car (and behind the
next car). I was re-mounting my saddle when she opened her driver door to
get out to confront me.
Her volume and aggression speaks for itself.
She threatened to assault me by punching me in the face, she screamed that
she "CAN'T GO AND HIT SOMEONE ELSE BECAUSE YOU'RE RIDING IN FRONT OF MY
CAR! [sic] I HAVE A KID IN THE CAR! DON'T ACT STUPID WITH ME! I WILL PUNCH
YOU IN THE FUCKING FACE!"
When telling her that this was on video camera, she said, "I DON'T CARE!
YOU CAN'T BE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD! MOVE A LITTLE OVER!"
She did not like being talked over, either, when I finally raised my voice
over hers to ask, "DO YOU KNOW THE HIGHWAY TRAFFIC ACT?"
She replied: "DON'T YELL AT ME! DO I LOOK FUCKING DEAF TO YOU, YOU FUCKING
BITCH?! I'M NOT FUCKING DEAF!"
I thought she might have been hard of hearing. My bad.
Aside from calling me a "fucking bitch" and threatening to punch me in the
face, no additional threats emerged. She asserted that her "car" "is way
bigger than yours". So I reminded her that her SUV is a weapon.
A car behind her honked to get her moving once the light turned green. I
admit to mini-trolling when I shouted back to her to "hurry it up!" But
beyond that, nothing further.
She said that she would be very happy if this video was uploaded to
YouTube. Unrepentant, aggressive driver? Here's your request and
WR52BMZ driver on phone, spits, drives at me, and threatens to punch me
Mythbusters: Drink driving vs cell phone driving:
Having reported it, it turned out this van was registered to an abandoned
pub in Peckham. Because of that the police couldn't trace the driver, and
the 6 month statute limitation on common assault meant that the charge
expired. I hope they caught him via ANPR at some point, the dirty scumbag.
So, my impressions? On the phone as I come past, I stop in the gap between
him and the vehicle in front. He drives at me from behind, spits at me,
goes through a red light, and then threatens to punch me.
Hasn't got the courage to do it on camera though.
Car pulls out in front of me and then fails to stop for police.
This driver clearly pulls out in front of me on a roundabout, unbelievably
there's a traffic police car behind him who see his error and put on the
blues and twos and chase him down the road.
Strangely enough, the man can't see his error and he thinks the police are
after someone else and so he pulls in only to pull out again. I recieved a
friendly wave and thumbs up from the cops on the way past.
Parts of the audio are cut out due to my passengers being rather vocal
about the situation.
Here's Two Good Reasons Not To Undertake Lorries
Two lorries in slow moving traffic, both of which I chose to hang back from
and wait until I was certain where the spaces were going to be. The second
one didn't present any so I had to wait behind for some while. Remember
folks, you don't HAVE to squeeze up alongside these things, you do have a
choice and if you get it wrong it could be your last. It really doesn't
matter how many mirrors they have, the driver still has to be looking in
the one you are in: ask yourself, do you feel lucky?

Both parties at fault, key is to keep calm and be polite, no need to swear or point blame,
The key to reacting is keeping calm, this isn't always possible when
someone nearly hits you but in incidences like this I think it is.
This driver had previously overtaken me in the other lane only 20-30
seconds before hand. He could have possibly tracked my whereabouts with
better use of his mirrors, but no-one is a perfect road user.
I shout waaaahey, to get everything to slow down helps, and a nice chat
helps the situation carry on and the driver educated, throw in a 'have a
nice day' to make you come across as the good guy.
He said 'I couldn't see you' which is something two-wheelers often hear.
Lets hope next time he is a little more observant
What could we do differently to avoid this kind of incidences?
We both didn't see the traffic backing up, so both of our lane changes
where late. We could both read the road ahead better and make our
The driver failed to indicate - this is probably the biggest issue, as he
didn't indicate I had no idea he was going to change lanes until he started
moving. Much easier for other road users to plan around you if you indicate
