Sounds like they rode into a lorry blackspot, I almost did that today, but that's because the cock wasn't indicating to go left.. you know because indicators don't help anyone.
Yes it could be, but you don't know. I was nearly taken off my bike the other week by a bus driver who didn't check before pulling out! I could see his mirrors so he should have seen me.
Shiiiiiiit! Thats right at the bottom of my road, scary!
Okay that's scary as that's the bottom of my road. I'm on TMR!
