    Depends on the size of the cyclist compared to the pedestrian.

    Male cyclists have killed women who aren't that old by cycling into them.

    I reckon any adult cycling and hitting an average 6 year old could seriously injure them.

    A while ago a male cyclist killed a male pedestrian.

    Ergo, using CUK extrapolation, all cyclists are killers?

    Nah cos I'm not going to shoot myself.

    I just hate cyclists who cycle on pavements when they shouldn't and don't slow down/stop for people on foot. Incidentally the main culprits in my area are male student types and older Asian women. I have told the male student types off.

    Male student types also don't like using lights at night.....

    First motorist prosecuted for driving too close to cyclist | Daily Mail Online

    Having seen this footage I think the cyclist is partly at fault. In narrow lanes cyclists should cycle in the middle of the lane. There are adverts on LOndon buses emphasizing this.

    He should not be so considerate.

    No good deed goes unpunished.

    Shooting the bearded twat would have been most satisfying in a very satisfying way.
    Try shouting "Doesn't your mother let you cycle on the road" at him.

    If not, shooting is definitely a good idea.

    Some should plain & simple not be allowed on the roads

    This morning's effort was the cyclist not even realising there was a red light & going straight over, causing the bus to slam on brakes
    & cyclist did not even realise!

    Mandatory test & insurance would (I hope) make them think a bit more

    It would have been better if the bus had run them down.
