Anyone that knows CS7 probably knows how poor the stretch of road by oval going southbound is.
Witnessed a very bad left hook this afternoon, the cyclist involved was trying to keep calm, but was extremely shaken up, the scooter rider and I waited with her for a few minutes.

blimey.. that was nasty.
And the car following wasn't paying attention either.

Very close call for the lady.

The driver tried to blame the whole thing on the van in front of him, which passed him on the offside, changed into his lane and then passed in front of the cyclist, not quite sure how that made his driving worse, as the same situation would have happened, just at different speeds.

Are scooters allowed in the cycling lane then? Sorry for the stupid question, it's extremely rare to see a scooter for me.

Shocking driving :ohmy:
Glad she reacted so quickly, that could have been really nasty.

The redish lane? that would be a bus lane. In London motorcycles and scooters are allowed in most bus lanes.
Not here, well not motorcycles anyway, not sure about scooters.
Here the reddish lane is a "bus, taxi and cyclist" lane. Private cabs use it too - not sure if it's actually legal for them to do so, but they do use it.
