Cyclist is danger to Wirral road users

First published in Letters

DRIVING towards Liverpool last Friday I saw a cyclist wobbling his way up to Moreton Cross taking flamboyant drags from a cigarette he held in one hand while with the other he recklessly steered his way in and out of queuing traffic waiting to join the roundabout.

A moment later an ambulance with two-tone horns blaring and blue lights flashing approached at speed from the direction of Upton Road.

All cars immediately stopped to let the emergency vehicle through – but the cyclist decided to ignore it and swaggered onto the roundabout, still taking drags from his fag, forcing the ambulance driver to brake heavily in order to avoid having to throw the blithering idiot in the back and rush him up to hospital.

What is it about so many Wirral cyclists these days that makes them think they can ignore the rules of the road?

There are as many idiots on bikes (and pavements) as their are in vehicles - percentage wise.

The ones that raise a laugh are the plonkers who seem to no longer be able to take their feet off the pedals at junctions and put heir feet on the ground - some of them to the detriment of their own safety and the highway code...

Why dangerous ? Unless you mean incompetent or reckless drivers are dangerous to cyclists ?

Rear the Highway Code again. Cycling two abreast is permitted.

It's becoming obviously the Globe letters editor has got it in for cyclists.

If everyone that came across a dangerous car driver wrote in, it would easily fill every page of his newspaper for the next five years.
