Cyclists should abide by the rules of the road
10:23am Wednesday 28th November 2012 in Letters
WITH all the complaints about drivers not giving cyclists enough room, I just had to submit a letter.
While driving past Arrowe Park last night towards Champions in the dark, there was a cyclist who had all the professional gear on but only had one small, dim red light on his bike.
He was wobbling into the road, so I didn't overtake until it was clear on the other side even though it is a wide road.
On driving past, I saw he had headphones on and to my horror was also texting!
When I had to stop at the traffic lights he was still texting and, because he was turning right, he proceeded to cycle between both lanes of traffic then continued into the middle of the T-junction and waited for the lights to change.
I thought cyclists had to abide to the same laws as motorists?
