I was on a bus some weeks ago and the driver was a complete loony – fast, swerving about, cutting up anything else that moved, not just cyclist, screeching to a stop, etc etc. Another passenger went up to him and had a quite word and flashed the driver some sort of ID. After that, the driver was a model citizen. I did wonder if the other passenger was some sort of plain clothes bus inspector.

With reference to the Highway code and rule 223. What about rule 69 – the one about red lights how cyclists are actually supposed to stop at them. Is this is a case of one rule for them and one for bicycles but if you don’t like the rule, hey, just ignore it?
