Broken ribs.... been there and done that, not fun.

Let's hope this can be used, in a positive way, to raise the issue of people in cars, in a hurry, not bothering to look for cyclists.

Last year, accidents involving cyclists and cars increased by a huge amount and it's about time the Govt. (and the Police) took this matter seriously, after all, they are the ones encouraging people to cycle to work.

Perhaps this will raise the debate on cycle awareness somewhat.

Something has to change.

No mention as to if the van driver caught taken in by the fuzz :?
I guess at worst they should have him on CCTV as it was a petrol station forecourt

Get well soon Wiggo :D

It was a woman driving, and I think she stayed at the scene.

I bet that SMIDSY moment was ... interesting!


SMIDSY = Sorry Mate I Didn't See You
A phrase all motorcyclists (including me) are only too familiar with.

Apparently he has the all clear. No lasting injury, just a couple of sideburns.
