Too many Toots!

I ride my bike to work virtually everyday for the last few years. Unfortunately since that idiot POLICEMAN gave a ticket I am now getting toots to move over. What is worst it can happen when travelling through roadworks. I am travelling at 30km per hour. Never use to happen. Why are drivers so impatient. Come on everyone. Be nice

But what about safer communities together?

so people are tooting at you because a police man gave you a ticket ? .

yeah, got a fright when i was cycling out of the paknsave wainoni supermarket on the weekend and got a loud closeup toot from a dork driving a white transit van. first one ever., even though i was as far to the left as possible, given the construction fencing along that short bit which has narrowed the exit.
perhaps i might start carrying an airhorn so i can return the favour if it happens again.

we are talking about attitudes. Idiot car drivers and law abiding cyclist.

Just ignore it. Things will go back to normal.

When travelling through roadworks, I hope you 'ride the lane' and take up the whole lane? Giving them potentially room to overtake by staying hard left when it's dangerous and unsafe to do so isn't a good plan.

The bigger the wagon the more agressive the driver
