The last one has missed the point somewhat - how about get RID of bus lanes altogether? I had the pleasure of being stuck in a traffic jam watching 10 buses going past carrying 5 passengers in TOTAL - this was at 5pm!!!

It hasn't missed the point if you're a biker.....

One that's sick of idiots in cars with a problem with bikes filtering. You'd be surprised how many car drivers you see look and pull into your path deliberately to block you.

how about a

petition making it mandatory for car drivers to do CBT ...passed my DAS course a few months ago and the difference it makes to road awareness is phenomenal. Now on two wheels I realise just how shite many car drivers are on the road..in two weeks with new pride and joy, I've lost count of the amount of nobbers who've nearly wiped me out...

I rode in the early 80's as a despatch rider. But i'm amazed at the bikes on motorways today. They drive inbetween the motorist even when the cars are doing 80ish What law do they ride under. Only approx 5% of bikes ride within the law today.

Funny, I spend 8 hours a day on motorways and I see the exact opposite.

The trouble with riding my bike now is that I have to wait two weeks to see if I got away with it, or a 60 fine and 3 points is on the doormat.

No speed cameras in the solent........................
