Hard to be sure, but I think he called her a whore just before he hit the van, then her final words were calling him a piece of sh1t. Seen a lot worse than that in Italy. Often scooters and drivers, but it can all flare up then die down to nothing very quickly.

Is the guy on the Boardman hybrid a poster on here? Cycles Twickenham to the Wharf and had an argument with a truck on the highway this morning?

The terrifying statue things on 'route 52' that I used for the ride home tonight http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfw2NqeA ... e=youtu.be

Came round the corner and nearly pooped my lycra when these appeared out of nowhere! :lol:

I just posted the 'raw' video as it came off the cam as I couldn't be bothered with all the waiting that goes with editing stuff in Movie Maker, hence the fizzle-out-to-nothing ending.

They're statue type things, unfortunately they're hidden behind a hedge as you come round a corner and I was a bit on edge having just escaped from a cow filled field(!). I came round the corner and as my lights swept across they lit up the ghostly figures that you can see in the vid.

What do you think, should I report this bus driver?

Ignore the troll. He likes to post stupid comments and think himself very clever.

Personally I'd send a polite note to the company explaining what was done incorrectly and ask the driver be warned about the possible consequences of his actions

This is all very strange and weird:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... L8qGC4ZDq8

Taxi driver intimidates a cyclist whilst filming him:

M: INAUDIBLE
F: Just say I had someone in my taxi and they are willing to come forward as a witness as well.
M: INAUDIBLE
F: There he is (LAUGHS)
F: Do you want to put your metre on, then if he does go to the council you can say you were on a job.
M: First light he's had it.
That's conspiring to lie to the police and the taxi firm.

Having seen some of the other videos that the chap who is filmed here has made and then posted himself on YouTube I imagine there is more to this than meets the eye.

Update from the cyclist:

I am now back from the police station. I had a meeting with the inspector and the licensing enforcement officer from the council.

Apparently this morning, the guy rung in to make a complaint. He said that I had been abusive and threatening on Marsh road (just before the vid started) and that I was purposefully blocking his way preventing him from overtaking.
I had my laptop with me and showed the two gentleman the video of the whole length of Marsh Road. Not once did I see the driver. The first time was when I was on the bridge.

The inspector wasnt very happy with this.

I explained the two other occassions on NYE that I saw him but the inspector said that unless when the passenger swore at me the driver slowed down, it would be difficult to get two cases of harassment (you need two). The NYD vid though was definitely harassment.

The inspector said that the council could do far more damage than the police in this situation (take his license away).The police will put a harassment warning by his name so that if he does it again, "he will get locked up". The councilman also said that he had a previous with this guy and he is known to the council. He then said that as I passed the police station on NYD, there was a police car following the guy which was seen on CCTV.

I gave a statement to the councilman and burned the videos on to two discs for them both.

I cannot comment on what has happened yet but the driver is coming in tonight to make a statement and the video of Marsh road will be shown to him. It seems like there will be a good outcome though.
