See clip at http://youtu.be/eI-ryuWmmwY A really poor overtake that scared the living daylights out of me. I could have touched the car it was that close. Passing to Close Highway code rule 213. Motorcyclists and cyclists may sudden ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/uT3vP0wxWSY There's no space to overtake on the section of road just at the beginning. The driver behaves well and doesn't try, especially when oncoming traffic appears. I try to be nice and pull right over in ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/Xfppu81VYEM There are parked cars opposite every few dozen yards. At the start of the clip a driver comes up and steadily gets closer and closer before trying to overtake and pulls almost next to me at 15 seco ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/UnY77s5FCmg I take up my position to pass the parked cars. I'm at them as a oncoming car appears. I don't ride in the door zone. The driver of the car simply keeps driving straight on assuming that I have spac ... [more]

A nice, smooth, new blacktop surface has just been laid on one of the worst stretches of the Granchester Meadows path. It is a shame that the opportunity was not taken to widen the path at the same time. It is much too narrow for comfor ... [more]

The cattle grids are a huge improvement over the old pinch stiles that used to prevent cattle from wandering off the commons. However, in a step backwards, the barriers have recently been fitted with these arms, jutting out into the path. T ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/Jn7InpvpEdI I heard the first car, which was very loud, but then was pretty shocked by the speed of the second in a narrow road with limited visibility. At the end of this short straight, it's a village centre ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/VkAKaQXMTUU "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 This was pretty scary as had no idea what was on-coming and had the bike right behind me.

See clip at http://youtu.be/cvxTZD5GiSc "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 This is even more important when travelling at high speed on a road that is narrow for 2 lanes.

See clip at http://youtu.be/7Jk--xt87Eg The car comes round the corner clearly not expecting anything to be there and has to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting me or the parked car in front of them. I'm on the right side of my lane so I ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/TbLevi6laxQ This may seem a bit less of a problem, and yes I had an escape route. But it was the blind assumption that I'd move over on my side of the road if they just kept driving at me. I was on the rig ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/_TvMUhKmptI Minimally breaking "Highway code rule 163". http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/TravelAndTransport/Highwaycode/DG_070314 But must come up to the careless driving given all the circumstances. Round a bl ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/fxpqip9HXwk I'm going along Granchester Road around 20mph about to turn up the hill. I hear a car coming right up behind me, then pull out into the opposite lane (at about 1 second into this clip). They have n ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/k6oUxT8Y4Fc I'm coming along Granchester Road approaching the M11 junction 12 southbound exit ramp. I have right of way. I usually come off this bridge somewhere between 25-30mph. As I get to the exit ramp ... [more]

Contrasting with #32641, the view in the other direction. Traffic calming is planned here.

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7I4d63gEryw This was a ridiculously dangerous piece of driving from a motorcyclist. At the end of a series of slow, blind bends, the rider accelerates well above the speed limit to pass a van t ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DPaR95Gi84 This roundabout is really quite awkward for cyclists. The cycle path takes cyclists all the way round the edge (ceding right of way 3 times just to go straight on). It irritates me ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Nyt5Egnj-A This overtake manouevre was started when there was no vision round the corner. If a car had been oncoming the car would have been forced back in (possibly into me) very quickly. ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYysY_tLaSU Okay, a police car, I'd suggest a traffic vehicle. No wonder we have poor driving habits if we are given poor examples. This overtake manouevre was started when there was no vis ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9clPRnCBJ8 2 incidents in 2 days here! I pull out to the right of my lane as I'm turning right at the end. This car pulls out of the Rupert Brooke's restaurant, across the road into my road ... [more]

See video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48lGT38SyAU I'm passing the cars a long time before the oncoming van gets to them. If I were a car this van wouldn't think twice about waiting. It's what you do in a vehicle. However, as I'm no ... [more]

We are all held up as we move down this close, winding part of Granchester. I'm on my brakes for a good proportion. At the end, after being very good for so long, the car behind me just must save themselves a second by overtaking earlie ... [more]
