IS there a law against using mobile phones while riding a bike?
I was driving in Kingsley when coming towards me was a woman cyclist either texting or trying to put in a number.
She was quite oblivious to the traffic coming towards her. She was so intent in this that when I blew my horn she turned away and nearly hit the kerb.
After giving me the universal one-finger salute she rode off.
Whilst I think he asked a valid question (even though it scares me that he is a driver without an understanding of the fundamental road rules), his response and the tone of his letter are disappointing as where some of the silly responses. It is as if by being stupid to use a phone whilst riding is soooo bad but yet I doubt Mr Daking would bother to write to the paper about a motorist doing the same or worse.
