comment How to get over anger at inconsiderate drivers

comment How to get over anger at inconsiderate drivers
@LightnessRacesinOrbit. In Oxford this weekend was told, by a finger-wagging car passenger, to use the adjacent cycle path. A path covered in wet leaves, dog-walkers, bus shelters 2-foot wide trees, with give-way lines every 100m. Hmm.

My answer owes something to the others who have convinced me to change my mind. I've up-voted them accordingly. :-)
