TweetDeck : Jez Higgins First day back after a fortnight on furlough. Actually been really busy! Because of the ice the other week I was riding in down Moseley Road instead. I was jumping off and running those temporary lights by the Print Works, just because.

TweetDeck : S N Pearse. (Steve) Jeremy Vine As an experienced car and van driver, and cycle user I'm competent at assessing personal risk and so to others. If other drivers get angsty because somebody uses the flexibility of cycling to their advantage, they're probably not suited to the responsibility of holding a licence.

Twitter Web App : S N Pearse. (Steve) Jeremy Vine There's no muddying of waters. It's illegal to ride across a red light. It's not illegal to dismount before the line and push it across. There's nothing in the Highway Code about road users having to earn acceptance. That's not for you to judge. They're there. Deal with it.

Twitter Web App : Elizabeth Jeremy Vine They are obeying the law by dismounting and continuing as a pedestrian. If that annoys a motorist then they are clearly prone to road rage and would immediately fail a driving test on displaying anger.
