Delph -I didn,t have you down as an idiot sir - but that is what you are :)
No, the idiot is someone who drinks and then cycles a bike. I used to be able to cycle at 25mph - if I hit someone at that speed, it was going to hurt them.
And anyway - people who nearly hit cyclists in villages are driving how fast?
Between villages? 90km/h, legally.
The speed limit is 40 km an hour? my car can stop dead in 10 feet at that speed.
50km/h during the day, 60km/h at night. I'm willing to bet you a considerable sum of money that you can't stop a car in 10 feet at even 40km/h.
Cyclist dies no one else hurt. Driver causes carnage to others
Not always. A cyclist who swerves onto the road causing the driver to also swerve straight into a tree or a ditch can quite easily cause trouble. The law was made for exactly that reason - too many people riding bikes while absolutely wasted.
none cyclists like Delph
What? Don't try and insult me, little man. I ride a bike almost as much as I drive - and I don't do either when drunk.
Gotta love these foreigners who come over here and start trying to tell the locals how to live their lives. The locals don't want to have to deal with scraping dead drunks off the floor, or deal with the trauma to drivers who have hit one of these drunks.
I have been lucky - ducking and diving - or just directly laughing in the cops face and darting off through the bush
I'm sure you have. Experience tells me that if you were actually caught by the Polish police, you'd be panicking and demanding to phone the embassy.
