8.15km / 24:42 / 35m / 9.9°C
Enjoyably cold damp commute along the creek as usual… up until I was back on the road on Atkinson street to cross Dandenong road.
Waiting on the left at the lights, the lights go green, ute driver plants foot, tears past to get the jump on the centre lane traffic, BANG, collects my hand and speeds off. Off to @VictoriaPolice where they refuse to take report because there’s no injury, no damage. The 1m minimum passing distance doesn’t matter unless police witness it, the bleeding obvious fact that the car hit my hand is not sufficient
One sore hand, one more confirmation that the local police are somewhere between disinterested to actively against anything to do with cyclist safety
