Contrary to public opinion and the comments pages of the Bristol Evening Post, it appears we are not a tolerant society.
Here we see a poor motorist occupying the cycle lane on College Green. With a flat tyre.
Notice how both he and the car V638HAA are effectively blocking the entire cycle lane, in both directions whilst the driver texts someone important. It seems he's not about to move out of the way for an intolerant cyclist that happens to be remonstrating with him for parking here.
This is obviously an inconsiderate cyclist. After all, he could easily have dismounted and walked his bike around the obstruction instead of making a fuss.
Luckily the cyclist eventually manages to squeeze past and calm returns. But only for so long.
In the half an hour that it takes to buy and learn to ride a fixed wheel bike on the pavement, the RAC van VN09GNN turned up to the rescue. Parked half on the cycle lane, and half on the zig-zags the driver is being very considerate to the drivers about to power up Park Street. But ignore that, cycling on pavements is wrong.
We don't approve of cycling on pavements, because we're not very tolerant. Yes cyclists may be able repair a flat tyre on the go, but changing a wheel on a car is a difficult and challenging process for a driver and requires the use of an Emergency Service.
So we had a word with all the cyclists trying get around the obstruction by cycling on the pavement.
We made them walk and be tolerant of pedestrians. We're drivers, and we have clout.
