Twice in two days, given a mouthful of abuse while riding to work … for not breaking the law! This morning the driver of Subaru (Forester probably) Victorian registration
###-### felt he couldn’t overtake me legally and safely in my lane or the lane to my right, so he swerved into the bus-lane to overtake on the left, meanwhile blasting on the horn and screaming at me to “Bloody move over”, then swerved into my lane when he was only half-way past. I braked and swerved and thankfully there was nobody behind to avoid as well and he was off in a great screaming rush to stop at the red-lights a couple hundred metres up the road.
Yesterday it was a woman in a Mitsubishi Magna blasting on the horn and frantically waving her hand in a “get out of here, go and ride through the McDonalds building site or the bus-lane or something” kind of motion.
Ride in the bus-lane, break the law and get abused verbally and physically by the bus-drivers.
Ride in the left-most legal non-bus lane, get abused by the motorists.
Thank you so much VicRoads for what you have done to North road.
