Cyclists attacked with eggs in Brighton and Hove

A spate of attacks against cyclists has seen them pelted with eggs by angry drivers.

Riders claim the pranks could go badly wrong and have urged other victims to report any attacks to the police.

Denise Blanks, from Mile Oak in Portslade, was hit on the back by an egg flung from a white van while cycling in Upper Beeding on Tuesday afternoon.

The 49-year-old was quick to capture the registration plate of the bad egg and police are now investigating.

But it is the second time she has been attacked while cycling.

She said: “I don’t understand why anyone would want to do it but it has happened to me twice and I’m sure other people have had the same experience.

Adrian Imms, 27, from Patcham, was attacked last month while riding along London Road in Brighton.

He said: “This is people going out specifically to chuck eggs at cyclists. That’s quite a sad way to spend your Friday night."

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said: “We take any reports of assaults on cyclists very seriously.”

It is sad that these things should be happening but until the police enforce the law as rigourously against cyclists as they do car drivers on the road, people may continue to do this. Of course it may just be some chavs out on a Friday night 'having a laugh'.

Why does this report say that the motorists are "angry"? "Reckless", "criminal" and "hooligan" would seem to be more appropriate descriptions

Its about time people like you found something better to do with your time, instead of posting ridiculous comments on sites like this. Do people throw eggs at thugs, at criminals generally at cars speeding, at people not paying their fines etc etc.

Grow up, get real and get a life

What a load of self-justifying nonsense. It's ok to pelt other road-users because of some perceived bias in traffic enforcement??? Engage brain before keyboard!

I was just about to say how long will it take for the comments about cyclists start, before I read your comment.
This has nothing to do with cyclists not adhering to the rules of the road.
We've had stories about motorists attacking a cyclists with a hammer, and now eggs. In comparison the only adverse story about cyclists is then riding on Hove prom when they're told not to.

I am a responsible cyclist and car driver. When on my bike I am courteous to drivers, wear all the kit and observe the highway code. This did not stop a group of men driving past me in a Peugeot 205 and spittig at me.
Sadly for them I caught up with them in traffic, spotted where they parked and I let all four tyres down.
The car had foreign plates on so I had no confidence that Sussex Police's Operation Crackdown where you can report online traffic incidents, would deal with these louts.

My original comment makes no excuse for such behaviour. There are though a minority of car drivers who feel hard done by in terms of traffic enforcement. This is reflected in the media over the past months and years, as well as this forum. I don't think they're right to behave like this but until they observe a cyclist being pinched going through a red light or similar, some of them wil not be happy. Please point me to where I said it was okay to throw eggs at cyclists.

However, when you have had two men gobbing phlegm into your face and laughing and then giving you a mastburbation sign for no reason and you know the UK law will not help you, letting down four tyres and causing them an inconvenience may teach them a lesson not to pick on people smaller and more vulnerable than them.
Think of that biblical tale David and Goliath.

I see Hove Central's point. There are people out there who feel hard done by when it comes to cyclists and until this perception changes then this may continue.

Or of course it could just be idiots and trouble makers, without speaking to them personally their motivation will not be known.

Andre Spooner says...

This is shocking! I cannot believe that people would carry out such dangerous attacks! I was riding atop my Mighty Horse on our morning gallop from Hove Lagoon to the Marina the other day, accompaned with great fanfare from the Powerful Trumpet of Spooner (it is an ordinary trumpet but much louder and it makes a sound a bit like a charging deer) when some rogue in a pick up truck hurled what can only have been a watermelon at me! The watermelon hit me in the side of the head and caused me to drop my Powerful Trumpet and very nearly fall from the back of my Mighty Horse.

My poor horse is a wary character at the best of times, and when we discovered we were under attack from some fruit-hurling hooligan he became even more distressed. I can assure you, brute melon thrower, that it took me a full twenty minutes of brushing the salty tears from the cheeks of my dear Mighty Horse before he was in any condition to continue our promenade.

But I ask you, what sort of society is this that allows fiends to hurl fresh produce at passers by, whatever their means of transport. If the watermelon had not been fatally damaged by its brief passage through the air, I would have enjoyed a free melony breakfast. As it was, me and my Horse had to eat a substandard omelette scraped from the back of an unfortunate cyclist who had been splattered with albumen during another of these attacks.

Something must be done, or I warn you, the good people of Brighton and Hove will rise up! I am already fitting a siege catapult to the back of my Mighty Horse, and am quite prepared to hurl Spooner-Vegetable-Da
rts (they are like a normal dart, but the prong is a sharpened carrot, and instead of feathers on the end there are flattened bits of brocolli) at any vengeful food throwing motorists. I warn you, denziens of the road, that I, Spooner, shall ride in glory upon the burnt-out wreckage of your vehicles if you dare attack other road users with groceries. Beware! Beware! Spooner rides again!

but he wasn't on a bike when he did it so it was a pedestrian that killed Tony, surely?

No one deserves to be assaulted by someone else just because of their choice of transport?

There are people out there who feel hard done by when it comes to cyclists and until this perception changes then this may continue. Or of course it could just be idiots and trouble makers, without speaking to them personally their motivation will not be known.

How typical. Cyclists are victims of violent and dangerous assaults and the usual gang of knuckle-draggers and morons are out making excuses.

How about actually condemning these assaults? Have you actually considered what would happen if a cyclist hit by an egg swerved into traffic? No, didn't think so, because to do so would require imagination, empathy and brains.

If you go out in Brighton on a bike you are routinely abused by people shouting, carving you up, parking in your cycle lanes. How many cyclists' brains spattered across the road will it take before pig-ignorant comments like Hove Central's will cease?

I was just about to say how long will it take for the comments about cyclists start, before I read your comment. This has nothing to do with cyclists not adhering to the rules of the road. We've had stories about motorists attacking a cyclists with a hammer, and now eggs. In comparison the only adverse story about cyclists is then riding on Hove prom when they're told not to.

I can understand why this is happening. They constantly break the law, going through red lights, on pavements, the wrong way up one way streets, holding up tax paying motorists. White vans should be banned, or at least forced to obey the rules and pay road tax. If I see another White van jumping a red light or throwing an egg I'll get really angry and rant about it at the mere mention of White vans.

On a serious note, I hope no one gets injured. Nobody should be assaulted, no matter what their mode of transport.

I was riding atop my Mighty Horse on our morning gallop from Hove Lagoon to the Marina the other day, accompaned with great fanfare from the Powerful Trumpet of Spooner (it is an ordinary trumpet but much louder and it makes a sound a bit like a charging deer) when some rogue in a pick up truck hurled what can only have been a watermelon at me! The watermelon hit me in the side of the head and caused me to drop my Powerful Trumpet and very nearly fall from the back of my Mighty Horse. My poor horse is a wary character at the best of times, and when we discovered we were under attack from some fruit-hurling hooligan he became even more distressed. I can assure you, brute melon thrower, that it took me a full twenty minutes of brushing the salty tears from the cheeks of my dear Mighty Horse before he was in any condition to continue our promenade. But I ask you, what sort of society is this that allows fiends to hurl fresh produce at passers by, whatever their means of transport. If the watermelon had not been fatally damaged by its brief passage through the air, I would have enjoyed a free melony breakfast. As it was, me and my Horse had to eat a substandard omelette scraped from the back of an unfortunate cyclist who had been splattered with albumen during another of these attacks.

I understand your anger and frustration, but don't let a few numptys bring you down to their level mate.

The best response to motorist anger is to smile and wave and wish them a safe journey. They are then left in their car feeling fat and angry all day, whilst you cycle off knowing you are the better person.

Attacking anyone or their property is not ok, no matter how badly they behave wether it be eggs, hammers or baseball bats.

Tale it easy, and have a safe journey.

Gosh, reminds me of that film where the guy loses the plot.

Could be quite a confusing day for naughty motorists as I too will be out on my bike this afternoon, also a grey and white mountain bike, however I won't have paint stripper or brake fluid, just a large smile and a tanned and toned body.

Hopefully unsuspecting motorists will enjoy the carrot as well as the stick.

ps not sure what the etiquette on threatening online is, seems poor show to me and smacks of desperation.

I suppose that would depend on your perspective. Being assaulted is, I would imagine, is more annoying than ill thought through and under-used cycle lanes.

The suggestion that cyclists 'are clogging up the roads' is, however, rather inaccurate to be polite.

Cyclists have the right to cycle on the roads, and in using them they are not, in fact clogging them up, they are simply using them.

The only thing that appears to fit your description of 'clogging up the roads' is traffic jams. Increased cycle use is an effective way to reduce the number of cars on the roads. less clogging.

A lot of cycle lanes are only really much use if you fancy cycling along at no more than walking speed the seafront one especially sort of defeats the object.
Would you drive on a road where you were expected to brake every 10 yards?
That's why cyclists don't use cycle lanes the council may have provided said lane but unless its use is faster than cycling on the road its not going to be used.

Not really. As there are two lanes on the seafront I find it easy to pass any cyclist who chooses not to use the lane.

Perhaps I am not fashion conscious enough, but other folk's choice of attire does not tend to irritate me. OK, perhaps skinny jeans on fat people are a bit unnerving. But I rarely see a fat cyclist.

I have to say that although law breaking cyclists are a pain, wayward motorists worry me more.

Regarding cycle lanes;
A cycle Track, means a way constiuting or comprised in a highway being a way over which the public have the following, but no other rights of way on pedal cycles with or without a right of way on foot. (cycle Tracks act 1984)

Poorly signed and often poorly routed cycle tracks often create situations that ambiguous or impractical for cyclists.

Cyclists have no right to cycle on a footpath/footway but only commit an offence where local by laws or traffic regulation orders create such an offence.

A law came into being in 1999 allowing fixed penalty notices to be served on anyone who is guilty of cycling on a footway - however Home office Guidance stipulates that these should only apply to where a cyclist is riding in a manner that may endanger others - in other words, it doesn't apply to cyclists who feel obliged to use a pavement out of fear of traffic and who show consideration to other pavement users when doing so. Therefore sensitivity and care must be used by those in power to enforce this.

As a responsible cyclist, I use pavements on occasion... but always responsibly as I care about the image we have.

Getting in the way of cars?
So, shoud we use the cycle lane or not? - it's a hot topic - and a great debate.

In 2006 a cyclist was was fined in Telford (that's up in the midlands, near to birmingham) for using a road when there was a nearby cycle track - less direct, slower and covered in detritus... he opted to use the road - Part of his defence was due to his speed - and as a result despite being fined, a new ruling came into being that stipulates that if a cyclist is travelling at least 18 MPH or faster, SHOULD USE ROADS NOT CYCLE PATHS!

This piece of information is pretty specific. I for one can maintain a steady 19.5 MPH on my roadbike - hence why I would use the road.

So. when you talk about lycra clad people in silly tops, chances are you're referring to sports/road bike riders - these guys (and bikes) are quite capable of reaching speeds in excess of 18MPH.

BTW - As you may have gathered I drive, cycle and walk, which makes me a driver, and cyclist and a pedestrian - I suspect most people are at least one these at some point in their lives?

Sometimes I make mistakes or take risks whilst driving, switching lanes early, or jumping a light, likewise on bike I may skip through a light, or get on the pavement briefly - but predominantly I'm law abiding. Similarly, whilst on foot I may bump into someone or obstruct their progress - it doesn't make me a bad person, or rider, or driver... just human.

Once we all accept that fact that we're all fallible, and no one is perfect... the better society will be.

Oh, and for all of you that ridicule cyclists fo being in the way or being foolhardy or stupid or whatever... the best piece of advice is this...

Get a bike. Go for a ride... you may find that inner child and learn to love life again.

Egg shell can cut the skin. Get yoke in the eyes or end up flinching and you might very well crash.

Its not kids "having a laugh". They were riding in the road - where cyclists are supposed to be.

I'm sorry but your views are misplaced.

The more of us who cycle on the road, the safer it becomes!

We can already infer this from the stats: As I said earlier there is an estimated 13 million UK cyclists, and ONLY around 120 deaths a year.

This by all reason makes road cycling very safe. If there are issues with safety we can sort that out with:

- voluntary training (National Standards, Bikeability and IAM training)

- reading the training literature (highway code, Better Cycling by the IAM, and Cyclecraft)

- reporting bad road use to campaigns like stopSMIDSY

- reporting it to the Police where abuse and danger occur.

We have to be proactive rather than sculk away on to pavements.

I'll use the pavement on mouslecomb way hill because its empty I'm usually moving slower than walking pace :)

You cycle on the Road and obey road signals...you have nothing tof ear...the others had better ... Get ready to learn the law of consequences
Come on then? What law did these people break?

OPSI it if you have to, section and act. Otherwise it proves you're just a troll trying to spread the usual sad rubbish, mate.

So BIG deal it's an egg, we did this when we were kids, and were thinking it was a kid we did it to, WRONG, the kid we did it to was about 30 years of age, and we never ran so fast. Only the once we did it.

You should have been taught that there is no such thing as 'road tax'- it's officially known as Vehicle Excise Duty. For the vehicle.
If you have been paying 'road tax' to some scam artist, you've been done...
By the way, can you play 'Donna Lee'?

As the previous post says its vehicle excise duty you're no doubt referring to when mentioning road tax. the classic argument against cyclists using highways.

it should be observed that local taxes go towards the upkeep and maintainance of the streets and roads and pavements; paid for out of council taxes, which we all should pay, cyclists, pedestrians and motorists alike. this means that said highways are not the sole right for motor vehicles and we all have access to them, regardless of mode of transport.

vehicle excise duty is a license to own a motor vehicle. money of which goes into central government.

I believe we have Winston Churchill to thank for this forward thinking policy as he was very much aware of the potential monopoly on the road infrastructures through rapid expansion of motorcar use

so there you go. bit of history for you.

as for putting lights on your bike... I couldn't agree more!

Every cyclist pays exactly the right amount of vehicle excise duty (often referred to as road tax) just without the admin overhead. Emissions 0 = £0.

Cyclists must display lights at night. £30 spot fine for non compliance.

So no change to the law required.

People who lice in glass houses shouldn't throw eggs at cyclists.

Cyclists are probably the most thoughtful and reasonable segment of the population and its the idiots who can't see this that need to be addressed.

Its not often I support some of the more controversial contributors on this site, but on this one I do!
