Seeing red

What can be done about cyclists who, when informed by a driver that they’ve gone through a red light, wait until you catch them up and then thump your vehicle so hard with their fist that they cause criminal damage? How can this unacceptable behaviour be policed?

Barry Borman, Edgware

 

Ticked off

Joy of joys! The clocks have gone back and the season of the brake light dazzler is upon us.

Ken Adkin, Cheadle Hulme, Greater Manchester

 

Motorway confusion

The messages on the overhead signs on the M25 are sometimes left on after the problem has cleared. Is there a number we can ring to inform whoever is responsible?

Terry Lockhart, Brentwood, Essex

Chain reaction

Paul Milner claims “Polite” safety vests reduce the number of accidents involving motorcyclists (“Eye-catching development”, Letters, October 23). But I — like most drivers, I suspect — only get to see the back of these vests once the bike has passed, usually when the rider is weaving through slow traffic. Perhaps there would be fewer accidents if riders were to abide more rigidly by the rules of the road.

Mike Pinker, Barnet
