    ...and if it was a man? would you have still flicked a V. Yes I probably would have too, but does sound a bit sexist mate. I almost brake-tested a mobile-toting woman the other night who was driving close behind me (I was driving too). My senses have been heightened since the law changed. As a cyclist I still see it ALL the time...:mad:

    The only horse that we have on the streets in Manchester tends to be sold in £10 bags.

    The one place horses should be completely banned is on cycle paths.
    Many of these paths were built years ago by enthusiast cycle volunteers.
    Great piles of horse poo often makes progress difficult and quickly grows bushes and trees on quieter routes.
    Dogs should also be completely banned from cycle paths.
    The one place you can get away from the damned traffic and these cycle paths are often littered with dogsh*t.
    Then there are the brain dead dog owners with long leads on reels who haven't a clue what is going on around them!
    I'd rub the dog owner's faces in their dog's poo!
    And rub the horse rider's in their animal's droppings!
    Or even vice versa! :mad:
    Make chariot-style wheel blades compulsory on racing tricycles!
    Let the bloodbath begin! :cool:

    Reminds me of when I was stuck behind a couple of police horses at traffic lights when one of them decided to flip tail and unleash on the tarmac...just glad that he aint had horsey baked beans for breakfast or my wipers might have been sorely tested...:)

    Rather have a horse on the road, than a horse being moved in a horse box....The former is much more considered to other road users, the later doesn't seem to understand the concept of gears....
