I'm following up to the recent article - A cyclist's view of bad driving driving.

Above and in the gallery, left, you will see screenshots from my helmet cam of five incidents experienced this week.

As a cyclist you need to be fully aware of your surroundings, however from experience it seems that some drivers seem to trip into an auto pilot mode and are only thinking of themselves on the road.

I am in no way wanting to re-ignite the debate about motorists vs cyclists and there are cyclists who push the boundaries but, for me, as someone who obeys the road rules, is considerate to others and acknowledges considerate driving, I get very frustrated when motorists act in an unthinking way.
