I got swerved at on the bike this morning! Well… I say swerved at, he slowly drifted into my lane coming to towards me to effectively play chicken all the while leaning on his horn. You see, he thought I was going the wrong way down a one-way street. And it is. For cars. There’s a contraflow bus lane with taxis and bikes can also use.
Stupid old goat.
As he moved back into the lane I swung my arm to indicate the dividing line and shouted "Bus lane! Contraflow!"
I doubt he got the message. Might have done when he got to the end I guess. What really gets me is how unobservant people are allowed to be behind the wheel. There are traffic lights in the direction I was headed which wouldn't be needed if that wasn't a contraflow; and a big 'BUS LANE' painted on the road facing the opposite way to normal travel.
When I was taught to drive I had to be aware of signs and road markings. Has that changed?
