I cycle and experience this situation on a daily basis. I've lost count the number of times I've moved over to avoid the dreaded "door zone", as recommended and despite me giving signals and plenty of notice, I get abuse. Some drivers' comprehension of the Highway Code is simply appalling. The last one who didn't want to stay back blasted the horn as they did a close pass, then proceeded to try and block from filtering on their left on the approach to a roundabout. This was a grown woman with kids in the car. I thought to myself, are you THAT immature?

But at the end of the day, it happens. There is little you can do about it other than report each case on its own merit. The one thing you must do however, is not let it fill your mind which is of course easier said than done especially if say you are commuting to work or college and just want to get to where you're going with as little hassle as possible. It sicks in your mind and drags you down. And of course the same happens to drivers, as we all share the road. You know something though, I thought the problems would get less when I got in a car, but to be honest it's just as bad..there's just so many dangerous, inconsiderate people on our roads these days and we live in such a crowded country, with poor parking allocation. Recipe for disaster it is.

From the OP
"While cycling on Lovely Lane, Warrington, I was passed extremely closely and then threatened by the driver of this Ford Fiesta. Due to his comments I believe this was a "punishment pass", a deliberate attempt to scare me, as I was riding in a central position in the lane.

The incident was reported to Cheshire Police, who contacted the owner, established who was driving, and gave the driver a police warning under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act 2002, for using his vehicle in an anti-social manner. I'm pretty satisfied with that outcome.

I've been told (via the police) that the driver has apologised, and that the driver is a cyclist himself and it was a "heat of the moment" outburst. Excuse me if I take that with a pinch of salt."

At least the police responded and acted on it. Many either won't respond, will drag their heels, or simply (and mysteriously) lose information. There is a general reluctance to get involved and that's why so many cyclists feel so vulnerable.

I think the cyclist did exactly right here. They didn't approach the driver, instead waiting behind at a safe distance. The cyclists didn't scream or shout abuse when the driver waited. Do anything less and you're opening yourself up to potential litigation because again, the police would prefer to play it down and not get involved (too much paperwork). All of this is my opinion.

Good one Cheshire Police respect earned and given

Don't you just wish more Police HQ's followed their lead and whilst I'm at it insurance companies should also have this website bookmarked and reviewed daily and maybe insurance premiums reviewed (increased) or cancelled (for persistent offenders and possibly reduced on "good driving"
