Jeremy, you can do better.

Yes, it’s about another daft posting on twitter:

I’ve long held the view that, if you ought to put your own house in order before casting criticism towards others. In this case: using a mobile phone while driving, Jeremy Clarkson.

Clearly the ‘holding up the traffic’ argument is baseless, and rule 191 of the Highway Code is unambiguous here:

You MUST NOT overtake the moving vehicle nearest the crossing or the vehicle nearest the crossing which has stopped to give way to pedestrians.

Jeremy’s own photo suggests that the cyclist has stopped to give way to a pedestrian on the crossing there.

As a cyclist I am not interested in “strict liability” (which is being considered and lobbied-for), I am only interested in using the roads fairly and legally.
