  • Into the bus lane I hope. Or bonus points for getting them over the railing and into the water?

    Firm has tweeted that they are helping the police. There is a reason why courier's face is visible when others aren't.

    I find the reaction of the blonde lady (black shorts) and dark haired lady (white shirt) both interesting.

  • Coming home last night, north along Millbank towards Parliament. The other direction was completely blocked with traffic, which almost every person on a bike seemed to think meant it was ok to go the wrong way around the traffic island at the zebra crossing by Dean Stanley St, not giving way or even slowing down to let peds cross. An old lady was stood there waiting to cross for ages, while 20-30 bikes came through the zebra crossing on the wrong side of the road, ignoring me and others telling them to stop.

    It's hard to dispute that this sort of behaviour gives cyclists a bad name - any pedestrian or motorist watching this would have seen a couple of riders obeying the law while 20x as many were being dicks. I think it's also a case of monkey-see-monkey-do and a good reason to lead by example - I'm sure half of these cyclists don't normally break the law but thought it was fine because "everyone else is doing it".

    I did have to laugh though when a guy on a motorbike, who had been shaking his head and gesticulating at the cyclists as they went through the crossing, also went the wrong way around the traffic island after the old lady had crossed.

  • I think the problem here is generally that living in London turns you into a cunt. If you go around giving a fuck about your fellow human beings, you'll never get anywhere.

    (But it's easy to get inured to it in London's Famous London.)

  • These are just human behaviours and not exclusively choice of transport based.
    As you say it's definitely a case of monkey-see-monkey-do. It reminds of that video of the all cars being driven on the pavement to get passed some road works (until a dude on a bike stops them, and gets an earful for his trouble).
