    He must have been on his way to see you as he passed me by Peter Cook's chemist just prior to this. He completely ignored the red light there, and as the cars from the Lichfield Road came round the bend towards Laura Ashley, he gave his legendary middle finger, which was more of an upright salute. He even took the time to look up at his extended arm to make sure he had used the correct finger, and then continued to shout some inaudible obscenities at the poor drivers who had the nerve to drive through a green light.

    Once I'd I lost sight of him, I heard the reassuring sound of a number of paps of a car horn. Bless him.

    Pi55 off Dickhead
    Pi55 off Dickhead
    Pi55off Dickhead

    He's back. Spotted going the wrong way round Gaol sq and against Chell Rd traffic, shouting. Amazing he's still with us.

    I saw him whilst I was walking to the Stone road bus stop a couple of weeks ago riding through Parkside, proper cycling etiquette, proper hand signals, giving way to cars.

    A reformed character I thought but then whilst on the bus a few minutes later I spotted him near the old Reynolds bar effin and jeffin at any passing car and riding down the middle of the road blocking anything with an engine.

    This Guy is a danger on the roads to both himself and others. A serious accident waiting to happen.
    Today he managed to stop in front of me at the Eccleshall Road/A34 roundabout shouting abuse and waving his arms. His actions are intimidating, abusive, rightening and dangerous. He needs to be banned from the roads.
    He has been doing his act for years and seems to get away with it.
    I don't pity the guy as he looks for trouble

    Last week he nearly was taken out by a lorry on the Shire Horse roundabout. I heard a screech of brakes from the lorry and a blast of the horn, by then Mr Angry was on his way down past the new estate on Beaconside.

    Prior to that I'm sure he'd done 2 laps of the roundabout, cutting everyone up and swearing.

    We all spend a great deal if time on here criticising the standards of driving around town, but it is actually an example of how high standards must really be that AC is still alive and physically well.

    He's actually a nice enough bloke when not on his bike - scares the shite out of me when I do see him on the road though. Fortunately I've developed amazing A C radar & exceptional avoidence tactics...

    Or more a case of the local drivers knowing him, and how to avoid knocking him off his bike.
