This Is Why You Shouldn't Tweet About Hitting People With Your Car #Bloodycardrivers

By Gary Cutlack on at

A mouthy lady driver has been shamed into deleting her entire Twitter account, after police began investigating her proud claim to have knocked a cyclist off his bike in Norwich.

Twitter user Emma "Right Of" Way said, in a tweet since removed after the account was binned: "Definitely knocked a cyclist off his bike earlier. I have right of way - he doesn't even pay road tax! #Bloodycyclists".

Things became a little heated after her aggressive and remorseless comment was forwarded to Norwich police, who suggested to her, also through Twitter, she should get off the internet and report the incident to a local police station.

The chap hit by Way said he planned to keep quiet about the accident, to avoid worrying his girlfriend. But after news of her ballsy tweet filtered out he went public, telling the BBC: "I think she came across as a very silly girl and made herself look like a bit of a fool. I'm not angry, I would just like it known that her stupid comment that I don't pay road tax is not an excuse to treat cyclists like second-class citizens." [BBC via Mashable]
