All the motorists are wrong in that clip. As are you most of the time on here.
1. Same for any motorist.
2. I'd wager it would be a lot easier for a cyclist to either avoid the pedestrian completely, crash but not hit pedestrian, slow down sufficiently that even if he did hit the pedestrian it would be at low speed and unlikely to cause serious harm.
None of which could be said for a motorist driving the same speed.
A) the limit is just that, a limit. It's not a target.
B) I'm going to safely assume the driver wouldn't beep at someone driving a car doing 40 in a 50 zone.
C) "holding up traffic?" That stretch of laneway is at the very most about 500 metres. Going an extra 10kmph faster isn't going to make much of a difference. "Holding up"
D) The lane clearly has markings to show cyclists are to use the lane too
How was he holding up traffic on George's Quay when the van driver tried to crush him?
