Road rage? Kara Dolman

Road rage? Kara Dolman hits out at drivers ‘impatient to kill’. In 15 years of cycling, I’ve had three collisions including one with a car trying to overtake me on a mini-roundabout and another with a driver who had just turned left into a no entry road. There is a hardcore of idiots among users of all forms of transport. Certain cyclists do themselves no favours by riding through red lights, checking their playlist while swearing at pedestrians who have right of way. Then there are suicidal pedestrians wandering aimlessly into your path. Can we all just stick to the rules and display basic good manners to others? J Peacock I live in Sydney and would no more ride a bike there than in London. But I have just spent two months in Paris where I cycled everywhere. Motorists there seem to have a relaxed attitude towards bikes, with no horn-tooting even when I was riding down a narrow street with a row of cars behind. I am about to go to my native Denmark, where you can cycle to your heart’s content. There are deep cultural reasons for these differing attitudes. Kathe Fraser Evening Standard, 2013 What is the main point made by J Peacock? a. All road users should obey traffic regulations. b. Car drivers who ignore speed limits are dangerous. c. For cyclists it is often hard to notice traffic lights. d. Pedestrians are not aware of their vulnerability. Why do you think he made this point? Explain. B.
