    Edinburgh has a 20 mph sped limit covering all of the city. I was undertaken by a cyclist last week because he was simply pedaling faster than the speed limit
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    I like doing that too. Best of all is to set off those speed traps that display your speed in green if it's under the limit and red if it's over the limit.

    I can't believe the way some people take their lives in their hands riding through the middle of Bristol every morning. Some of those roundabouts are deathtraps for cycles & I've even seen them towing kids in buggies.

    Stupid really because there's no need - the pavements are dual use but I guess they CBA to navigate all the pelican crossings to get across safely.

    If I as a driver undertake another vehicle I am in the wrong, why is it encouraged for cyclists to do the opposite of all other road users.
    because the cycle lane is on the left part of the road?

    I am not sure where I stand on this,
    but when I do make up my mind, I will be very angry about the whole thing.

    Be aware, if you're abroad, filtering is not legal in all countries.

    Most cyclists ride perfectly safely, obeying the rules of the road. We only notice the small minority who don't. Same with crap car drivers. This gives rise to cognitive bias - all cyclists/car drivers are suicidal/murderous idiots.

    There is no need to in lots of other European countries as they have lots of cycle lanes which don't have parked cars in them or aren't next to the door zone.
