Hitting a cyclist is dumb... tweeting it is dumber...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

There's not much that isn't stupid to tweet. Incriminating yourself in a crime might take the cake though.

Who knew that british cyclists didn't pay road tax either?

It's mildly comforting that it's not just US drivers who are total jackasses.

Of course, what's even more comforting is that all those other twits thought to forward her tweet to the police for resolution.

You can, but the fix tends to be frowned upon.
