A driver in England, one @EmmaWay20 tweeted (though has since deleted her account) the following:
"Definitely knocked a cyclist off his bike earlier -- I have right of way, he doesn't even pay road tax. #bloodycyclists"
It's funny -- in the way that getting away with murder is hilarious. She hit a real biker, who luckily wasn't seriously harmed, and left the scene, somehow feeling in the right. Though we don't have road tax here in the United States per se, each state requires car owners to pay registration fees, and truckers pay hefty higway taxes for their hefty vehicles. Does that mean that cyclists (many of whom probably also own cars) shouldn't have a right to use roads? Seems a bit preposterous, and ipayroadtax.com and @cyclehatred do a great job collecting info and tweets on such anti-bicycling attitudes.
Luckily, someone noticed Emma Way's tweet and called her to task on her hit and run. That someone? The Norwich Police.
