  • I used to go there all the time when I lived near Manchester, I hope the falafel and chips is still on the menu. The chips were peak filth.

  • Damn good video.

    Victim-blaming cyclists who die because they "ride like twats"? With the top bantz "he must have punctured/died" (crever) at the end?

  • In the UK. Happy to help. Any other basic legal queries you have about UK law maybe start a new thread tho.

  • So not that country then....
    There is no law or forcible punishment or statute or byelaw or even common courtesy tbqh to prevent a close pass in the UK. It just doesnt exist. Sorry.

  • Law > fantasy land

  • But in the wild West of the metropolitan pigs, you can get fined for it, if they see fit

  • You'd better tell the police mate:

    Inspector King and his team are showcasing Op Close Pass, a visual aid
    demonstrating to motorists the law on leaving a 1.5m safe overtaking
    distance from cyclists.


    Thousands of drivers have been issued FPNs, fined and given points for close-passing cyclists because it's against the law.

  • lol I’ve literally had people who have close passed me prosecuted, fined and given points. But sure, tell me how impossible it is.

  • How is a close pass defined colloquially? As a motorised vehicle overtaking a bicycle or motorcycle at a distance that causes a reasonable cyclist or motorcyclist to feel surprised or endangered by the manoeuvre? Surely the Highway Code has several sections against that.
