  • Just watched this
    Awful behaviour

  • i'll add to the survey had two accidents in the last year n half one witnessed by an off duty police officer which i will get compensation for but the other more serious when i was seconds from death by a hit a run driver who accelerated over me at a junction but they couldn't be bothered to check cctv enough in the area even though i had exact times....

  • I didnt even realise you can escalate things. Half dead already anyway.

  • Cycling is a solo sport right, i dont really get what this surveys about

    Really not constructive or helpful.

    RoadPeace work very hard to ensure that roads are safer, and if you are involved in an incident (which I do not wish on anyone) they will be there to help champion you and lobby for changes in a way that few others will be.

    If you cannot be constructive and helpful please do remain silent.

  • Done.

  • I have to say that the statement:

    Cycling is a solo sport right, i dont really get what this surveys about

    is crass in the extreme and in so many ways.

    Cycling is not just a sport. It is also a means of transport and a recreational activity. When a sport is it hardly solo. Added to all of this, the survey goes beyond cycling and deals with all road accidents.

    Perhaps @linefly93 might care to explain the basis for his (and I must assume that he is male) ridiculous statement.

  • Done for my latest and most serious crash. Made me think about the shocking approach of the officer who dealt with the post incident stuff. Luckily the officer who dealt with my complaint was top notch.

  • Road Peace, can you if you have not already, can you print some transfers/decals to sell, so people can stick them on their bike. I love your ethos and it would be money to a good cause.

  • sorry to hear. hopefully there won't have a next time, but just in case, what I had to do was ask the businesses near the accident to check their cctv myself, with the exact time it's a really easy task and they did, and the pub in the corner had it on their camera.

    I emailed the wonderful MET police all the details, name of the pub, name of the manager, their address, telephone number, number plate of the vehicle, everything I could gather, the wonderful MET still couldn't be bothered to drop by and collect the DVD the landlord was kind enough to save the footage on.

    So I kept emailing and calling the wonderful MET, then the PUB manager saw the pain I was going through and allowed me to see the cctv, I was able to identify the vehicle, added that to the police report, the MET added the owner of the vehicle to the email chain...

    cutting this short, the MET never did anything, but I got the vehicle owner to pay to fix my motorcycle. So although this was about a motorbike and not a push bike, if you have the patience to do all the work yourself and get lucky with a cool pub manager that feels your pain, you can have a positive outcome.
