Road users are urging the Government to intervene in an attempt to bring down the soaring smugness levels of cyclists.
‘It’s becoming almost unbearable for some motorists to use their vehicles,’ said the Road Users Alliance. ‘These cyclists need to be brought down a peg or two. We know you’re saving the planet and we’re destroying it – we don’t need to know how you’re not affected by rising oil prices as well!’
Haulier Bob Morton added: ‘On the continent smugness is much lower than it is here, so foreign hauliers spend far less time running the bastards off the road. It gives them a massive competitive advantage over us.’
Chancellor George Osborne said that he sympathised with motorists, but ruled out the possibility of action being taken. ‘All I can suggest is that motorists buy themselves a Toyota Prius, that way they can be just as smug and annoying as any cyclist.’
