    So have I and I have been dealing with the consequences of RTCs for longer. I have seen huge improvements , during that time , mostly due to better roads and enforcement.

    Hopefully better engineering and enforcement will save more lives

    There are much bigger issues to deal with too, such as joined up thinking.

    Road Safety Authority criticised over not following its own Rules of the Road on cycle lanes – IrishCycle.com

    I can think of two issues I campaigned on locally in relation to road safety where officials told me that whilst I was technically correct, they were going to do something utterly stupid and counter productive and that my concerns would be dealt with through Garda discretion.

    Along with fewer cars and better separation of transport means that just don't mix comfortably.

    If you want I will PM the name and number of the haulage firm and you can give them a call.

    Plus it is a rear light , so it makes you very visible

    Reality doesn't enter the equation.

    In the other video, the one with the black Mercedes Vito, some people seem to think that the driver deliberately tried to squeeze the cyclist, even though the Vito never moved off the line it had from the beginning, a line that was dictated by the presence of the traffic island. That driver wouldn't have seen the cyclist approaching either. His focus would have been on the road ahead.
    1 thing i notice on this thread is that its not the drivers thats disrespectin other posters and lashin out the abuse....

    Why did the car try to overtake when clearly it was not safe to do so?

    Possibly because cyclists know it's their legs at stake.

    As a cyclist, what leaves me gobsmacked is seeing that last video's maker doing the same stupid thing three times on the same junction.

    If you don't have the stamina to stop and start your bike regularly, you shouldn't be cycling on the road.
