Stupid Motorist Tweets Boastful Message About Hitting Cyclist – Is Tweeted Back By Police!

A cyclist-hating motorist with the emotional maturity of a blueberry scone, @EmmaWay20, tweeted what can only be described as a daft and idiotic message about knocking a cyclist off his bike and tried to justify her actions claiming that she had right of way because the cyclist “doesn’t even pay road tax”.

The motorist, from Norfolk in the UK, thought she was safe sharing the message with her 100 or so followers, however someone with a conscience clearly took offence to it and informed the police. She must have had quite the shock when the Norfolk Police tweeted her back telling her to report any such accident to the authorities.

Since the story broke, @EmmaWay20 has deleted her Twitter account, but the overwhelming stupidity of her tweet and her callous attitude to cyclists, has meant that the attention hasn’t died down.

Emma Way has been identified by her Facebook page and Twitter users who were mortified by her stinking attitude sent more information from her social media accounts that show just how dangerous she is on the roads. She has posted numerous pictures of herself tailgating other motorists and there is even an image of her speedometer showing 95mph!

There was some suggestions that she may have been joking in the Tweet where she bragged about knocking a cyclist off the road, however it seems that a local cycling club have identified the person that she hit. The Iceni Velo cycling club member James Lucas aka @RabAusten tweeted about the incident saying that the victim of her cyclist-rage had come forward and had contacted the police.

Twitter users even made a point of contacting the firm where Ms Way is believed to be a trainee accountant. Her employer Larking Gowan were quick to condemn her actions and stated: “Please be assured that this is not a view held by the firm and we most certainly do not condone this behavior. We are taking the incidents very seriously, and a full and detailed investigation will be carried out and appropriate action taken. We have already spoken to Norfolk Police.”

So she whacked a cyclist in a hit and run, boasted about it on her social media and seemed to be of the idiotic opinion that because the cyclist “doesn’t pay road tax” she has every right to barge him off the road. It’s a ridiculous and shocking mentality to have and maybe the fact that she is likely to get in serious trouble with work and the law might teach her a lesson and make her reconsider her reckless and selfish attitude. You can but hope.

Based upon posts from the Iceni Club Facebook page and reports in local media, the man identified as the cyclist that was hit by Ms Way is a Toby Hockley.

The BBC interviewed Hockley and he described the incident and claims he is lucky to be alive. He said: “A car came tearing round the blind corner and narrowly missed a cyclist in front of me. She came on to my side of the road, I took the wing mirror off and I went flying off my bike into a hedge…But I managed to get out of the hedge and stand up. The car was nowhere to be seen. She hit me, and she was gone. All I know is that it was a blonde girl driving.”
