/ Its not just drivers.
This was not some hoodie wearing kid either, it was a guy on a road bike in full lycra.
After about 3/4 of it he said "best go - it's getting a bit steep...".
I've done 12,000km on my bike this year - in this time I've seen one cyclists answer his phone whilst riding. In that same period of time I've seen....er....I lost count in mid January how many car drivers I saw talking on their phone.
(I saw a trucker on the autoroute last week on his laptop - I've never seen a cyclists do that)
Oh and before you say yes well what's the ratio of bikes to cars, yesterday I rode 80km and saw more bikes than cars.
I was in Zeist in the summer, in Holland
A girl was cycling along on her 'sit up and beg' with a phone to her ear, another girl was sitting sideways on the pannier rack, on her phone as well. No one batted an eyelid
I wish everyone in this country would just calm down a bit, why the hurry? Why the competition for road space all the time?
Live and let live.
