Why donít red lights apply to you - You are lucky to be alive!

Iíve got no problem with cyclists hopping onto the path outside of town to avoid the traffic lights but some of these idiots just run through the red lights or ride up busy pavements without caring. Prison crossroads are one of the worst. Iíve nearly been knocked over several times as cyclists shoot from Brighton up towards Neville when thereís a green man to cross.

The bottleneck is rife for this. One morning this week a young female cyclist went straight through the red on the St Anne's Hill side and almost came off when suddenly faced with a car coming out of Westgate Street. Silly girl.

I am just as infuriated as you about idiots like this because they give the rest of us law-abiding bicyclists a bad name and then we all get abused. Shame on you, girl with yellow panniers

Basically quite a few cyclists have a problem. They time themselves. Are hence in a race. But if I drive my car in this manner I'm a ...t. Has there ever been a fatal crash at bottle neck? When it does happen, will probably be on a Friday. Karma will get these tools.

I was once nearly killed at the bottleneck while on a bike going towards Brighton. A driver with a trailer thought he could get past me before the end of the bottleneck. Luckily I immediately stopped to see his trailer mounting the pavement where I would have been.

I presume you are one of those cyclists that jump the queue at the red light, and then ride furiously through the wide bit to hold up the traffic past the Grammar School and Shelleys Hotel. I am not surprised that the trailer driver wanted to pass you while he could.

Live and let live, for heaven's sake. I'm not condoning it but if a cyclist wants to take chances, why not? Is it that different to a car driver exceeding the speed limit, tailgating, or using the phone at the wheel? Oh yes it is! Cyclists will only kill themselves

My advice is, if they take liberties then cut their room down to a minimum, especially their escape route. If you see one coming up on the inside, pull over tight to the curb. Tailgate them when theyíre two abreast
In short, let them know youíre not putting up with their Micky taking

It is completely legal to overtake cars. Tough if you don't like it. You'll soon get past cyclists if you wait. You are unlikely to get past me when I am going down towards Tesco's though. A bike is just faster than a car between the black horse lights and the bottom of town. That's not reckless cycling just cars are held up all the time. Get a bike or get over it.

That is not my post at 2.50. While I sympathise with my impostor's attitudes, I never tailgate or carve up other road users. Even freeloading pisstakers. At the end of the day, the law does not favour the motor vehicle when push comes to shove (pun intended).

Just wondering if I am the only driver /cyclist who admits being irritated by cyclists when driving and by drivers when cycling?
I honestly try not to be annoying as I am very introverted and hate being the centre of attention. One reason I love cycling is you can get away from the noise and stress of driving... Its ironic that in doing that I unwittingly create stress and anger in others. I spend a lot of time waiting at traffic lights feeling slightly stupid because I follow the highway code.
My children have done the bikability course just as I did cycling proficiency. I suspect many "adult" cyclists would have benefitted from this rather than an entitled eco mindset many seem to adopt when subject to the mildest of admonition.

I laugh the passive aggressive helmet cams when being ridden by idiots. I would love to see the footage of the stunts they pull.
If I was ever on a jury where footage from a helmet cam was introduced as evidence I would ask to view the recording of the entire journey.
