Default Near Miss of the Day 477: Driver refuses to wait for sensible placeto pass club run

QUOTE:
Today’s near miss looks bad enough on first viewing. Now watch it again and imagine five more riders lined up behind the one with the camera.

The incident occurred at the junction of the A369 and A39 in Marksbury.

“We were on our standard Saturday morning club run, when the driver decided to squeeze through a pinch point,” said Jayme. “There were six of us in the group, fairly close together, as club runs tend to be.”

Jayme reported the incident to Avon and Somerset Police and received their standard response that a warning letter, fixed penalty notice, or notification of intended prosecution would be issued but that no further details would be provided.

The force is one of several to effectively treat close passes of cyclists as a “victimless crime” by regarding those on the receiving end as merely witnesses.

Most police forces accept reports by cyclists of careless or dangerous driving as a complaint by a victim, which means they are then obliged to provide information about the investigation in compliance with the Victims Code of Conduct.

Cycling UK believes that in treating a cyclist submitting evidence as only a witness, forces are implying that their report isn’t been taken seriously.

This video shows a cyclist stopping at a red light and is therefore fake.

Even more proof it must be fake. Nugents will need to up the dose of Prozac, although Cannabis tea would have the same effect but be less harmful.
