A pedestrian was in the middle of a pelican crossing – literally in the middle of the road. As I pulled-up, 4 guys on racing bikes pelted past me. They cycled straight at the guy in the middle of the road, swerving either side of him at the last second.

A cyclist did that last year and hit my wife. He ended up with a £300 fine after I ‘encouraged’ him to accompany me and speak to two nearby police officers.

As a result, if I am crossing on a zebra crossing or on a green man, and a cyclist is not respecting the red light and by doing so is going to come close, then I ‘suggest’ that they keep away by swinging a rucksack or pointing a steel tipped brolly at them.
