BBC Documentary Tackles the Cycling Issue

Last night he BBC debuted a 60 minute documentary on the cyclists vs cagers war in the UK. Called The War on Britain’s Roads, the reviews say that while it makes an enjoyable watch, it does so by exaggerating how wild both sides of this debate are. Apparently both pro and anti cycling groups felt the program did more to inflame the war further than illustrate its dangers.

Cyclists of course are some of the most vile and reprehensible people on earth, going as far to make death threats against people who speak their mind on the dangers of cycling. It is no surprise to see them behaving this way. Likewise many people are getting angry at cyclists who are clogging up the streets and creating dangers by running red lights and weaving between traffic. It is always important to remember not to stoop to the level of cyclists and play dirty. Violence is not the answer.

While most of us here in the U.S. tend to ignore the cycling epidemic, in the UK people are waking up to the dangers of cycling and catching on to the games these people play. And it isn't pretty. Hopefully we can avoid similar behavior here by using non-violent political action to get cyclists off the streets before it devolves into this. Always remember to demand your local politicians support getting cyclists off the streets. Do not take matters into your own hands.

From the article below it also addresses the families of victims. For years we have been championing getting cyclists off the streets for this reason. It is a shame their families have to go on sans a son, husband, mother, etc because their selfish loved one decided cheesing off cagers was worth his/her life.

We plan on watching it as soon as we find out where it can be seen and giving a in depth review.
