What are you trying to say? How dare you call me a rat, oops, the rage between biker and car driver continues.... Seriously, well not that seriously, are you saying you pay road tax for your mountain bike?
#7
no offence intended, I own a car as well, and choose to cycle into work.

I thought this was a bargain hunting website, surely you know it's cheaper to cycle than to drive especially with the price of petrol nowadays
#8
No offence taken, it is all in good spirit. It is a bargain to stay uninjured/alive; cycling through central London is not to be recommended. I have seen a cyclist try and pass a truck on the left at a roundabout, I was waiting in traffic to enter the roundabout at the other side. The result was too awful to mention.
You have a car and pay road tax, and a bike. Your car tax does not include a bike. We have two cars, and don't pay one lot of tax.

Motorbikes pay road tax ;-)

Yes, but they don't ignore the highway code, they often show they are capable before being let loose on the streets. (Pizza delivery lot excluded, but employers pay the tax, costs, etc.)
My point is that defensive cycling is much better than expecting others to look out for them - I would have thought personal responsibilty for safety is far better than relying on drivers to look after cyclists safety. This is best done if cyclists learn to obey the highway code, and, for example, never move to the left of any cars, always on the right. This is the easiest safety rule that would avoid a lot of injuries.
Finally, what have I started!! Honestly, I have nothing against cyclists, but the risks of cycling through heavy traffic surely must outweigh the benefits. I only think they should think twice about the risks/benefits.
Finally, finally, very sincerely sorry if I have offended anyone, I did not mean to in any way.

Why should drivers look out for cyclists, they should be looking out for us when they go through red lights etc, OH and they should have a licence, insurance and pay road tax.
#12
When i see them stickers in cars i think of the tv adds what are aimed at motobikes not push bikes?

iv'e been riding motorbikes for 20 years on and off and the amount of cars that pull out on you when you have right of way is shocking and the 1st thing they say to you is sorry i did not see you (i found the answer was to get a loud exhaust)

I do agree somthing need to be done about cyclist running red lights maybe its time to fit a license plate to the back of them ?

But weather its a motorbike or push bike give them a chance every bike on the road is 1 less car in front of you
#13
The clue in your comment is, quote: "....they say to you is sorry i did not see you.." and this is because they really did not see you. Cyclists seem to think that drivers pull out on purpose when they see a bike - now really, this cannot be true, anyone who believes this is very wrong.
Following on from this, it would be a good idea if bikers took this on board, and try and look after themselves - be seen and look out for drivers who genuinly do not see you - after all they are at risk of injury. There will always be the odd driver who does cut up cyclists, but it is usually to stop them coming in front at the next lights, then the car oertakes, and again the cyclists comes in front at the next lights and so on. In these cases, it is better the cyclist jumps the lights and gets out of th eway of these irritated drivers who may do something silly.
I agree, the road is for everyone, and if we take the anger out of this debate, teh problems can be resolved.
But, cyclists have to pay tax, insurance, etc. and have minimum safety requirements, a cyclists MOT. They should not be allowed on the pavements on these specially constrcuted cycle lanes. These are a danger to pedestrains as cyclists trabel on these at high speeds. Also, they are paid for using our tax money!! The cyclists want everything but don't want to pay for anything.

Think Bike is aimed at motorcyclists not push bikes, and as someone who has been a motorcyclist on the wrong end of a car, namely the bonnet, windscreen, roof then road, and ended up needing emergency surgery, to have someone say "I just did not see you", is not an acceptable response. I don't really understand why so many people here are against a campaign aimed at saving lives through extra vigilance whilst driving.

Here does it say I am against this campaign?? All I am saying is that the person that knocked you down did not do so deliberatly - he did not say, oh look a bike, I will shove him and see what happens!! Bikers are difficult to see - and when you don't see something, you don't see it and you move, surely you must have done the same. Bikers also drive on the left, overtake on the left (this is really stupid), and then want drivers to think bike! I am also saying defensive biking will prevent many accidents, like don't overtake on the left, always have full, main beam lights on, etc.
Sorry if you think I against this campaign, but thinking bike will not make you visible.

See my comment above, jumbled up for some reason, probably did not see my post coming :-D

I got my sticker a few months ago...agree with campaign....thanks OP

Don't know who shoved a car up your bottom but my bike is always taxed when on the road. Just because bikers tend to SORN them for winter doesn't make us law breakers.

Oops, sorry, just seen the blaring mistake of cyclists being blamed.

I did ride a bicycle to work for 6 years also, and if bicycles did ANY damage to the roads I'd be all for paying tax on it.
#19
Stick this on your car and you'll look like a total tw@ ;) Other drivers won't even give way.....lol

afraid to correct you all but cyclists do pay tax for roads it comes out of everyday taxes we all pay, the government has conned you if you think vehicle road tax goes on road maintanance!

When did a cyclist last kill another road user - it happens about once a year. How many road tax payers kill other road users - hundreds per year?

I speak as a motorcyling, cycling, car driver.

pgotecha...................... why dont you read it properly its for motor bike riders not push bikes....i ride a motor bike i also drive a car and i am a class1 lorry driver and i dont have any points. push bike riders do need to take more care of other road users, us lorry drivers cant always see push bikes when they sneak down the inside at lights etc........motor bike riders are classed as bikers..........push bike riders are classed as cyclists.....
sorry if I have offended anyone.
it is the duty of every rider/driver of every type of transport to be considerate and to drive/ride safely as you only get 1 life.

This debate went a bit off course - bikers are at least as bad as cyclists (brothers-in-arms) - overtaking on the left, etc. As for courier bikers, best left unsaid, as for the Pizza boys, best left unsaid. Are you telling me these lot take care of other road users? There is an implicit thought that car (and other similar things, because you want to deferentiate, e.g. the white van man) should look out for bikers and cyclists, but bikers and cyclists don't need to do the same, indeed they shoudl have special treatment.
I agree it is the duty of everyone to look out for each others - no special treatment. If that is the case, and if you use the roads, then paytax, insurance, etc.

As for the 4-year old, yes, tax, 20 p and insurance £120, because 4-year-olds are a pain.

It is a question of who is to blame, cyclists and bikers in lost cases.

Get real, does your kid go to school on the roads? Does your kid drive to work with metal things atached to the bicycle to scratch cars that are stationary ar traffic lights? If so, the kid should be banned for life.

This arguement is an old, outdated one, we have moved on from this, the tax-system is a bit more complicated than that, it would apply only if we lived in an autonomous village of 20 families!!

Yep, mine yesterday, great for sticking down things like cables, much stonger than sellotape!! Only joking, but I am going to distribute mine to bikers if I can see one stationary at traffic lights!!

They do pay road tax! So pay them respect.
And I think you'll find that bikers are way more thoughtful that car drivers. They are part of a community and when you show them courtesy you always get a thumbs up! It's attitudes like the ones displayed above that put them in hospital... the "Oh I didn't see them" is THOUGHTLESS, not the rider.

Do you not ge the point of the sticker? It's to make following cars think before they overtake you and possibly collide with a bike that they "didn't see" in their mirror!

You are a complete *****, mate! It seems like the only argument you have is that a cyclist overtook you on the left, which probably happened at the lights whilst you were still stationary, and you just keep quoting this. It's attitudes like yours that make accidents, if you look carefully you will see the bike! You cannot justify the argument that they aren't visible... they're hardly invisible!

Sounds like some people are being thick. The "Think Bike" campaign is about motorcyclists, not cyclists. What's more. People aren't saying "Why am I paying road tax that doesn't actually get spent on roads?" They're saying "I pay Road tax, so should everybody else!". These people would have me paying Pavement Tax, because I walk a bit.

Think Bike is aimed both at motorcyclists and other vehicle drivers , the ignorant people like the one who has a picture that looks like Gollum is obviously on another planet , I have read from top to end of these comments and it annoys me that ignorant people like them wonder why they should look for bikers , well after seeing an RTA were a ignorant tw*t in a car cut a motorbike up at speed and turn a corner in front of him causing the biker to skid and collide with the car , well let me just say the car driver had a lot of explaining to do the the police and other witnesses who saw the car driver not looking , wing mirrors on car's are not there just for the sake of it , and how the hell did all these brainless people pass their driving test when it clearly teaches you to look for other traffic and bikers , I have been driving a car for almost 10 years and have always looked for bikers , bikers deserve respect , let me see the brainless people who make comments like '' EErrr bikers dont pay road tax '' learn to ride a motorbike , people like that will never ride a bike cos theyre muppets in there own brainless little world. These are the sort of people that like making their own mind up about the rules of the road and get it wrong 100 times over , these are the people that cause accidents.
