Imagine the Scene:

A large Range Rover estate car is driving along a street in Haddenham.
It catches up with a family of mother and her young children cycling slowly and carefully.
The car driver hoots at them, causing alarm to the children.
The mother is outraged.
She feared that the children would fall off when hooted at.
She thinks she should be able to take her children out cycling on a village street without harassment from cars; all the car had to do was be patient and wait to pass them.
The car driver however complains that the children were taking up too much road space and should have been nearer the kerb.

Which of them is right?
What behaviour do we expect from drivers and cyclists on our village streets?
