Just had an email from a good mate. He was out riding with his girlfriend near Mylor when a couple of bozzos in a Commodore with P plates buzzed them and the passenger leant out and whacked my friends gf on the backside. My friend got a nice photo of the car as it sped off and reported the incident to the Stirling Police Station. Turns out the driver is a known offender and the vehicle is unregistered.
My friend didnt say what colour the car is but Im betting its the same bozzos in the white Commodore I encountered while out walking near Aldgate a few weeks back. They sped past and yelled abuse at a cyclist who happened to be passing me at the time.
If youre riding in the Stirling/Mylor area look out for these morons and report any incidents to the Stirling Police.
That is assault!
It is most certainly assault and I am heartened that the police take these incidents seriously. Hitting and throwing stuff at cyclists needs to be stopped and it is a campaign I would like to see taken on by road safety groups. I have had discussions with some cycling advocates, MPs and others but it's a bit tricky because what we don't want to happen is copycat incidents.
If these bastards are caught and given a suitably severe punishment and that is publisized, that should discourage any copy cats.
That is most certainly aggravated indecent assault. Its exactly what happened to me, and the police took it very seriously.
Yup Bec had a similar experience on Military Road some time ago.
What are legal ramifications if I publish the culprits rego plate in this thread?
How about posting the photo?
Have to ok this with my friend first. Dont want to jeapordise any court proceedings that may result from the incident.
Will get back once Ive talked to my friend.
Repeat offenders, unregistered vehicle, photo evidence. Send it to the car crusher and make them watch it disappear.
It's probably their mother's car....
