A small number ruin it for us all
I READ Natalie Bennett's take on the problem of outrage of cyclists on the pavement. It would appear that she has some valid points but the millions spent and due to be spent haven't fulfilled the task of making Bristol a cyclists' area.
It takes two to tango because a percentage of motorists are aggressive to cyclists, for those cyclists to then ride in an aggressive manner towards pedestrians. The only area not covered in her letter was any way of an apology for the injuries and abuse. The only answer given was in her last paragraph and reads as follows: "This would quiet all those outraged people and provide a deeper understanding over why cyclists are tempted to use the pavement now and again. In this double dip recession I don't think there is the political will or the money or the police to implement a purge on aggressive drivers against cyclists and the same against cyclists against pedestrians."
It's like all aspects of life, it's only a small percentage that ruin it for all. Unfortunately it's left to the minority of society to keep complaining so that eventually the law on all sides will be upheld and not ignored.
