Some delightful chap riding a Ninja punched my work colleagues car and threatened to fight her, shouting at her to get out of the car on Tuesday afternoon in Croydon area! WTF.
If anyone knows this person, or this is you…
Firstly, when is it ever acceptable to threaten a woman?
Second, the situation did not warrant this sort of response. She had to stop for a blue light coming through a junction, then got stuck in a red. When she looked in her mirrors to reverse, the biker was in her blind spot. He honked, she stopped and profusely apologised. No harm done. Why then did punching her car and threatening her seem at all acceptable?
Third, you give the rest of us a bad name. Sure, we all get a bit p**sed off on the road from time to time, but punching a woman’s car? That’s not in the spirit of biking.
How about you take a deep breath and remember that beneath that helmet and leathers you’re just a normal human being too.
Or if not, try shouting at me instead. Then you’ll get a shock. Bellend.
