    Cyclists – beware of junctions!

    There are many of us who enjoy the pleasure that is cycling. It is good for us, as well as being a very ‘green’ activity, as no harmful chemicals or by-products are created as a result of taking a leisurely bike ride on a sunny afternoon. But there are dangers, as Accident Advice Helpline and our expert solicitor in Torrance can tell you.

    Other road users

    It seems that other road users are not always so keen to share the road with cyclists. Van drivers, car drivers and lorry drivers are known to not enjoy having the speed of their journey interrupted by a pedalling cyclist. Likewise, there are occasions when cyclists can be the cause of on-road issues, too.

    Hoever, when cyclists are knocked from their bikes, the results can be catastrophic.

    The likelihood of being knocked off your bike increases at junctions. Research has shown that cyclists are increasingly likely to be knocked off their bikes at junctions. Police reports label this ‘looking past the cyclist,’ which is a common phenomenon with any user road user other than vehicles – it can happen when drivers do not see pedestrians or motorbikes, too.

    There have been various campaigns, both in the press and on TV, that encourage drivers to look for other road users, although it is not known if this is successful or not. Campaigns of this nature are for the longer term, rather than a short, sharp fix. Cyclists can be seriously hurt when thrown from their bike, although some people fortunately escape without too serious an injury.
