The total lack of any knowledge of the Highway Code or the needs of other road users, does more to demonstrate why these incidents happen.
The "I'm in a car get out of my way" mentality is the real problem here.
Because the road surface has a very nasty ice crack in it that runs slightly diagonally towards the curb, and it is just waiting to grab a velo's tyres and chuck the rider to the tarmac.gbb
The opening shot with WVM, after hes gone, you maintain primary as you approach the very next left jctn...why? I dont see anything approaching from the left.
There was plenty of room for all without me being in the farcility - which is strewn with glass and other debris that the vid doesn't show. The road is extreeeeemly wide there, the first two cars to pass me still had room on their RHS to the centreline, the last car cut me up by trying to take me before the traffic light island, which I usually take in primary because it is too narow to get a car and a bike through safely - especially in those conditions!As you leave the R/A and move toward the traffic lights, you have primary nearly all the way...but why. Theres nothing approaching from the left, and as you near the lights, theres seems to be plenty of room for all if you moved into the cyclelane.
Hope that explainsI ask why...there may be good reason, i just cant see what it is.
