If they are report it to tesco's preferably via twitter or other social media - there is one thing tesco can't stand and that is bad publicity.

I find most drivers are like sheep. If you get one good driver giving you lots of room to pass the following vehicles tend to do the same. Unfortunately the close passes work the same way. Best I've seen are traffic cops. They will go completely across the other side of the road to pass you if it is clear.

It has to be said,the vast majority of drivers give space and treat me well when I'm cycling,unfortunately it's the small but significant minority that cause the stress and upset.
I come across some extremely thoughtful and courteous drivers,particularly drivers of HGV's

There's always one(at least),but generally HGV drivers tend to be good around cyclists.I've even experienced good 4x4 drivers before now :wink:

I have been impressed by all the supermarket home delivery drivers they seem to have more patience, does it reflect the age group driving these vehicles?
