To the idiot driving west up Bearton Road on Tuesday, February 6, 8pm in what appeared to be a bright red Vauxhall Belmont estate with a roof box.

Idiot, please note. When a cyclist is in the middle of the road indicating right, it is because they are turning right, not because they are giving you a signal to overtake! You nearly killed me, had you stopped to notice but you probably did not even see a thing, did you, because you were doing about 40 in a 30mph residential road!

While the courts of this land may deal with you lightly, dishing out a minor fine and inconvenience to your driving record, please note - should you kill me with such inappropriate driving there is a sum set aside in my will to specifically persecute and harass people like you long after the event. I hope you got home in time to see your family tonight as you very nearly denied mine to the right of a parent. Idiot!

CYCLIST ALIVE, Bearton Road, Hitchin
