I find it hilarious that many many drivers’ default mode is to get everywhere as fast as possible with no thought for more vulnerable road users. Reminds me of when I took the lane going down Peckham Rye once (potholes in the gutter) and a car came past beeping me, telling me to get out of the way. There was nothing coming in the other direction so he could have easily overtaken me safely rather than almost hitting me. I confronted him at the lights, and tried to explain in a calm manner the reason I took the lane, but he didn’t give a shit, was telling me to read the highway code (??) and to not inconvenience him, then obvs he wheeled out the road tax thing, so then I called him a fucking prick and cycled off.
