After riding for a few weeks as a new rider I have purchased L plates displayed them on the back of my bike. As I had predicted, I have been treated differently as a learner rider on the road. This morning on my way to work, I had left a larger than usual gap between myself and the car in front. The car behind me honked at me in an effort to get me to close the gap. I also get more cars overtaking me than usual while maintaining the same speed as I had before. When I go 60 the cars go 70, when I go 70 the cars go 80. It seems the faster I go the faster they go so they could overtake me. Is it just me or do drivers discriminate against learner riders?
