I reacted to this video after the 'backlash'. Watch it here, unless you're easily offended - automobilrevue.net/v/Q1YxcEhlTmxFSTg

Ride London has earned £53 million for charity over the last five years and as a result some roads have to be closed. They're advertised as closed for month leading up to the event and on the days leading to the event every 200 meters. The time for our local area; 7am - 7pm. It's closed after the main race because they open the roads to amateur cyclists and families who can ride the route or part of the route (for charity) without worry of cars. These drivers decided that 6:20pm was about all they could take despite the fact that cyclists COULD have still been on the road.

What are your thoughts on the video? I don't know, maybe I'm in the wrong... Also, the steward was a young guy clearly following his bosses orders and he received some vile abuse just for doing his job.

      1. Well done for backing this poor guy up
      2. Bad idea leaving just one guy in charge of a road closure. You always need back up. Had there been two guys this may never of happened

      We had a similar experience a few years ago outside the police federation conference centre.. even they told us it would be ok to leave by 5pm.... a total cluster f*%k.... really poorly organised. I did t see a cyclist for at least 90 mins before they decided to open the road...

      Don't blame the merc guy one bit
      We had the same with that ridiculous velo bike race , I finished a 12 hour night shift at 7am and every road within 3 miles of my house was closed off . Wasn't even allowed to walk a route home . It's bad enough trying to get around in a car anyway getting stuck behind middle age lycra clad entitled fools riding 2 and 3 abreast without being a prisoner in your own home because of a stupid bike race .
      You want to race your bike go to a bloody track you utterly selfish twats

      these types of drivers are the selfish scum of society we have to deal with on a daily basis , their lives are shit and they are as frustrated as a pedo in a school assembly , they have made bad choices in life and think they are above others because they took a daft loan to buy a plastic car which will devalue quicker than they can pay it , they don't exercise, eat shit and talk shit , go crash somewhere

      j pezza nope you pay vehicle tax for your vehicle, the amount does depend on co2 emissions but still this is a vehicle tax.
      Road tax is included in the council tax. Road tax hasn't paid for rods since 1937 and the vehicle tax is all put in one pot and given to the chancellor of the exchequer.
      Not trying to be a pain but these are the facts.
      But the government do their best to confuse so don't worry too much.

      @Watford Fc I know the road up keep is paid with council tax. The amount of "Road tax" is based on how much emission ur vehicle puts out

      j pezza no no no. Vehicle tax is paid by all that own and use a vehicle. Road tax is actually part of your council tax bill therefore anyone whom pays council tax pays road tax, cyclists and non cyclists alike.
