This explanation should not be publicised as being a proven fact when it is simply a theory.J4CKO said:So its one situation where being polite and considerate is not the way to go, being a competitive assertive bloke is safer.
Being flippant aside, it does kind of make sense, it needs explaining and now we have an explanation of sorts publicising.
The reasons why lorry drivers kill more women than men should be investigated. Guesses should not be presented as facts.2Loose said:like evolution?
It is established good practice though, is it not?
Now that, I agree with.dondare said:Safe positioning is something that cyclists need to understand for themselves
Do all the mangled railings, demolished pedestrian refuges, dislodged kerbstones, knocked-down signposts and re-aligned traffic lights bring it upon themselves too?User3143 said:The articles not that good, basic assumptions regarding view point from the cab and mentality of the overtaking party. I really don't know what the purpose of that article is when most cyclists bring it on themselves. That comes from my own experience and the instances/vids that have been posted on here.
Actually, yes it does (and no they're not) but lorries are much more massive and unwieldy and are capable of causing much more damage. Cars don't displace kerbstones and leave them in the road or rip up a pedestrian barrier without the driver realizing that they've done it.User3143 said:Most of the above I have seen in towns comes from accidents involving cars - does this mean that cars are not in safe to use in towns either?
