    So, happily videoing the commute - waiting for the first proper cut-up or SMIDSY worth uploading... Turns out, the incident is another cyclist. I don't think the bus driver was too happy.

    If you can't make out the junction, the bus has green and is crossing the one-way system to get to a contra-bus-lane. The cyclist jumps a red to go the wrong way down a one-way cycle path...

    Pity the bus didn't hit them (very gently though, just a nudge before stopping but enough to take them off the bike) - they might learn to look and take notice of traffic and lights next time!

    What a complete idiot. :tongue:

    Kudos to the driver for stopping in time.

    And kudos for the double decker behind for not going into the back of the other bus...!
     
  9. A statistic waiting to become recorded, unfortunately :biggrin:

    Thats a really odd set of junctions around that part, there are frequently near misses with all kinds of vehicles but that could have been an especially nasty one
