What a git.


That bus did pass damn close, but it doesn't justify inconveniencing the
passengers on it.

As an aside, I wonder if pushing the emergency stop on a hybrid
prevents the
electric motors being used too?


As a cyclist I have many times seen aggressive and dangerous behaviour
by bus drivers and have many times been sorely tempted, on catching up
with them, to do just the same, but never did. I applaud his courage in
expressing his displeasure. I just hope the bus driver learns his lesson.


Would you also applaud direct action by users of public transport to
express their displeasure when cyclists fail to stop at crossings,
assert their right to use the pavement (whether or not designated for
shared use), ride at speed aggressively, and cycle on platforms and
concourses?

As a cyclist who never did any of these things, it annoyed me intensely
to see other cyclists breaking the law so often. So I might find myself
approving. Applauding - well one can't do that while cycling as it
would need two hands.

I was once admonished by the local police in Vancouver for riding a
bicycle without hands along a beach-side path (not vehicular-mixed
street).

Apparently, I was threatening Canada's 'free' healthcare system with
bankruptcy... while coupla-tonne zoom-zooms were grossly ignoring the
speed limit along the street closeby.
