Lots of accidents happening at the moment it seems and 2 recent deaths, take care everyone, it can happen to anyone, I've nearly been knocked off my bike 4 times in the last 6 months, it's mostly just down to remembering to be careful, look, think, anticipate, be patient and polite even if the situation might be frustrating, simple driver error including failing to look is by far the biggest factor in road casualties.

Of course it is always the driver's fault! Unbelievable!

That's not what he is saying. His words apply to all road users, car drivers, bikers, cyclists, even to pedestrians crossing the road.

We are all busy doing our own thing, we all have stuff going on in our lives which is a massive distraction.

When on the road if we all focussed just a few percent more on what we are doing and pay more attention to what is around us at all times the roads would be much safer.

Pedestrians crossing the road. Now there is a problem in itself. And sadly many of the older generation are at fault. The number of times I am driving with caution through places like Winton, Charminster Road, Ashley Road in Parkstone, and the number of people who just step out into the road without looking, or taking the extra few steps to a proper crossing. School kids are the same. At Kinson and Hadow Road, they have a perfectly controlled crossing, but because in the case of some kids its in the wrong direction, they cross the road, doodling on their phones, not taking a blind bit of notice of traffic. Its an accident waiting to happen, moreso with the speeding parents late for pick up.

And??? A bike is a bike and the person on it is still at much more risk of injury or death than the person in the car

I am just saying that the advert you mentioned related to motorbikes not bicycles - what is your problem?

That goes without saying surely - look at what happened last night! As I ride a sports bike I feel much more vulnerable on the road than when driving my car. I also don't understand why cyclists take so many unnecessary risks on the road!
