Yesterday, I almost got ran over by a car who cut the corner coming onto my side of the road, I got pretty pissed off and asked what the fuck he was doing, he got really angry back, was swearing his head off (bitch this, bitch that) and I kicked his car- while still sitting on my bike, so not very hard at all. And I was going to cycle off but he got out of his car and smacked me across the face.
I'm a girl, so I was really not expecting that at all, and I wanted to fight back but was more afraid for my bike than anything else...which is a bit ridiculous but then again fighting back would only have got me into more shit. And I've only just finished putting my bike together and it's an absolutely beautiful thing.
Instead I tried to take a picture of his license plate with my phone- he grabbed my phone and threw it across the road against a wall, and then drove off.
This was at the very top of Brick lane, north of Bethnal Green Road.
My phone is properly broken, and its 3 months in to a 2 year contract, there were no witnesses and no cctv. I was in shock and it took me a couple of hours to calm down, and then I went to the police. Today I got an email to say that they've closed the case.
I'm just venting
If anyone has a smartphone going feel free to let me know.
