There I was riding to work along North road, same as I always do. Obeying the law and riding in the lane adjacent to the bus-lane, same as a I always do. Nearly every other person using the road seems to be able to safely and legally pass me, same as the always do.
But there’s always one…
The driver of a tow-truck from Gardenstate towing, registration
TOW-###, was somehow unable to pass me and instead drove along for 400-500m blasting on the horn, yelling abuse and gesticulating wildly for me to get off the road and into the bus lane. I tried to wave him past, he just kept on hooting and yelling, finally as we got to Clayton road he swerved from being in the left-hand lane behind me, through the centre lane, across the right-hand lane and into the right-turn lane.
Why is it that once or twice a week I get to meet a neanderthal who is insistent that I break the law so that they aren’t inconvenienced?
