Set the scene - I walk to work most mornings and there is this one dickhead on a pushy that always rides up the footpath even when there is a totally clear wide empty road. Normally not a problem as there is enough room to get past, even though he maintains his line and the pedestrians get out of his way. But then he decides I have to get out of his way when we reach a choke point in the footpath and if I hadn't jumped out of the way he would have flattened me. Next day I stop him and tell him to stay off the footpath or at least don't knock people over. As expected, I get the finger, a f^&* off and he rides off. So I figure, fine. Next time I won't get out of the way and will brace up for the impact. But I figure this then becomes a bit of his word against mine if it gets ugly. So I take a photo of him this morning just missing me on the footpath to establish a record of his behaviour before any future incident. He sees what I am doing and spits on me. I got it on camera! So I go and report this to the cops. The junior constables on the desk say "Yeah, we can fine him for riding on the footpath. Spitting on you, especially in the face, is technically assault". They then go and confer with the desk SGT and now the story becomes "Best thing to do is walk to work another way". WTF! I say to them you've got to be kidding and they just shrug their shoulders.(This plus the accident I had on the bike 2 weeks ago where they didn't fine the guy for an unsecured load have now precipitated a formal complaint letter) So now where does that leave me. This bloke has technically assaulted me but I can't really prove it apart from a photo that looks like he is spitting in my direction. He is still riding in a threatening manner. The Police have advised ME to go a different way. So the question I have is if tomorrow this bloke tries to mow me down again and I brace up and send him flying(100kg can have it's advantages), then where do I stand?
