Re: Missing the obvious
As an addendum... I not infrequently have to stop at green lights while cycling, because pedestrians start crossing as soon as the cars have passed. Heck, they start before the cars have gone and if I don't stop they'll get trapped between lanes. Some cyclists don't wait at pedestrian crossings, this upsets some drivers out of proportion to their views on, say, driving at 40 miles per hour down residential roads or texting at the wheel. This is not to say I have any sympathy for, to give an example, the twit a couple of weeks ago who cycled past a group of other cyclists stopped at a pedestrian crossing and who all of us passed in turn about thirty seconds later while he was having a chat with the police who'd also been waiting for the lights.
