Interesting twist by that Leicester rag... The cyclist is in fact on the correct side of the road if you look at the beginning of the dash cam footage and has right of way to the oncoming white car, like any other vehicle on the road. He takes evasive action in the split second he had and was tagged by the car who was clearly going the wrong way around the roundabout.Usual tosh on the Leicester mercury bout it being the cyclist fault yadda yadda
Clearly, the driver was at fault.Usual tosh on the Leicester mercury bout it being the cyclist fault yadda yadda
didnt see i generally read asI have seen quite a few cars just ignoring those simple painted roundabouts and just driving across
WHich is fine if there is no traffic around
but that does rely on the driver being correct 100% of the time - in this case they 'didn't see' the cyclist - in other words hadn't looked properly and just did what they normally do
Cyclist had no chance
As far as him 'taking the middle' - looking at where he landed he seems pretty central to me - blaming him does seem a bit of a push!
central on the wrong side of the centre of the roundabout, his line was always directly across not following the lane.As far as him 'taking the middle' - looking at where he landed he seems pretty central to me - blaming him does seem a bit of a push!
If you watch the entire clip, the cyclist is on the correct side of the road and even hand signals. Perhaps he could approached a little slower although he doesn't appear to be going that fast, but he was dealt with a car swinging in to his lane and obviously panics. He also had priority.
Didn't see the cyclist, far too many drivers can't see a truck towing a 45ft trailer never mind a cyclist. The problem is they're not looking.Thanks - the full video shows a lot more
I cannot see how the driver did not see the cyclist
At least the car stopped afterwards - see too many reports where they just drive off
You are talking nonsense; and your "evidence" quoted from bikeability shows a rider going straight on - not even relevant!!!
