Ok, so can someone explain to me why cyclists don't have to follow the highway code??
Everyday, ...EVERY DAY...when I have to cross the traffic lights on stround green road down by the sainsburys/old dairy/Stapleton arms I wait patiently for the green man to appear before crossing the road, and practically every time I do some 'cyclist' just rides through the lights nearly running me over - the other week one jumped the lights and nearly hit my pregnant wife!! If they're not jumping the lights, they decide to cycle across the pedestrian crossings themselves instead - without slowing down at all - before rejoining the road! ...and most of the time they have headphones on! How is that safe??
I'm all for 'green' travel, but why do these cyclists have to be so inconsiderate, feel they are above the highway code, and more importantly, down right dangerous!?!
