- Wallsend on Tyne
On my return commute I travel along a fairly fast stretch of residential road, which then curves sharp left past the entrance to a filling station, then leads to a junction which goes straight on or curves right. As I come round the first left curve I position myself in the centre of the road near white line, I indicate that I intend to turn right and cycle as quickly as I can to the junction and follow the curve to the right. It is not a hugely busy road but there is usually some traffic behind me. The drivers seem to fall into three catagories: 1. Wait patiently while I cover the whole 100 yards and turn right. 2. See my intention and undertake me. 3. Undertake while sounding horn and making non sensicle hand signals. The only alternative I could see would be to cling to the left hand side of the road and be trapped by overtaking cars. Am I doing something wrong?
