Perhaps you should get your facts first before slating police for procedures. It is quite obvious that it was serious enough to close the road off. Things like that aren't done likely. Next time, why don't you ask the police what has happened before assuming what has happened..?
I assume that you meant to write "the" facts instead of your facts, and "lightly" instead of likely. Try to calm down and take a deep breath before rushing to your keyboard, it may help with your grammar. Perhaps the cycling causes you to become breathless, lighten up and take it easy, I'm not the enemy.
I'm a driver, and as such I see things from a different angle to a cyclist.
The facts are that road closures have little or no affect on cyclists, they can either use the pavement or perhaps another street which is one-way against them, the keystone kops become myopic when that happens. I stand by my opinion that on the whole roads are closed for a lot longer than is really necessary in the UK following an RTA.
