    I was once taken over badly on that very busy roundabout by Llanishen Morrisons, they were a couple either side of my care I nearly hit the lady on my passenger side as I was concentrating on her partner and traffic to the right , she then gave me the V's , thankfully I did catch up with both of them further on for a chat.

    Don't worry. The way this Council is going, there will soon be cycle routes everywhere, even if they have to rip up the roads to do it.

    Drivers never do any of those things do they cos they're all perfect. (Apart from the taxi driver who overtook me last Sunday, giving me so little room, that I could have slapped his car if I'd wanted to)

    Theres also a call for a presumed liability law, where in any accident involving a bike and a motorised vehicle means the driver is presumed to be at fault, unless it can be proved otherwise. It's quite common in other countries.

    In which case let's hope that never comes to pass; I don't think you can presume anything

    If cyclists paid road tax and had to have insurance then perhaps they would get a more sympathetic reaction from other road users.
    And cyclists who ride on the pavement and ride across pedestrian crossings expecting the traffic to stop as if they are pedestrians, ride the wrong way on one one streets, jump traffic lights etc. should be fined and they should have a licence so points could be deducted until they'd have to chain their bike to their garden fence and leave it there for 6 months.
