Cars are lethal weapons, and many (I'd say most) drivers on the road lack the skills to use their car safely. As a, now primarily, two wheeled road user, I find I'm often ignored and bullied on the road.
This is really dangerous. Cyclists don't have airbags or crumple zones, and so are very vulnerable on the road.
Long story short, I think I should be allowed to carry an Uzi.
A car should never be used as a weapon. Those that do should be prosecuted, fined and imprisoned. I thoroughly approve of cyclists with go-pros using the footage to help police do their jobs.
However, there are a dangerous number of bad cyclists on our roads too who neither know the highway code nor wear any kind of protection or illumination. Most of us drivers do not wish to injure anyone and would like it if 2 wheeled road users assist us in this matter.
