A DRIVER has been left enraged by a cyclist’s repeated efforts to avoid getting hit by his car, it has emerged.
Joe Turner was riding his bike to work when he made several cautious manoeuvres in an attempt to protect himself from serious injury, which very briefly delayed the journey of motorist Martin Bishop.
Bishop said: “It was f**king ridiculous. At one point, he clearly signalled that he was taking a right turn, then, after a careful backward glance, moved out in front of my car where I could see him in a flagrant bid to escape getting crushed under my tyres.
“Time and again he was taking tedious precautionary measures to avoid being hospitalised. Meanwhile, I was stuck behind him for several seconds, unable to get past. He very nearly made me slightly less early for work.
“When I finally overtook him I rolled down my window and called him a ‘stupid bastard dickhead holding up decent people’, but I think he was too focussed on maintaining a safe road position to hear me.”
Turner said: “I don’t set out to irritate anybody. I’m just not keen on the idea of being mowed down on a Thursday morning. Especially by an absolute wanker in a Range Rover.”
