"This cyclist was traveling on a road when a van from Girona passed him within the 1.5m limit, practically brushing against him and threatening his life. The rider wore a camera and this allowed the Mossos de Esquadra to prosecute the driver. The penalty was a 200 euros fine and four penalty points on his license"

It didn't occur to me until after I posted this, but the phrase "white van man" refers to the fact that "a man is driving a white van". They are notorious in the UK for being bad & dangerous drivers, stopping anywhere etc etc.

 

the color of the actual driver is not mentioned and not relevant.

 

Man - I've been in SA too long!
