20222Photo #20222Private hire vehicle CU05 MWM with windscreen plate number 409, parked (engine off) in contraflow cycle lane. Took this picture, then went over to his window.

Me: "Are you aware that you're illegally parked?"
Him: "Mate, mate: move on."
Me: "I think you should too."

The driver then violently opened his door into my leg, then began harranging (is there such a word?) me; I walked off to get my saddle replaced (not related to incident; just didn't like the one I had). Reported to SCDC who passed information onto the Police.

It's also worth noting that that cycle on the left of the frame should have some lights on: it was quite light at the time, but it's just my camera's not too good as I've mentioned before.Enforcement:
