Cyclists face more and more danger
AS a regular cyclist, the dangers from some arrogant and selfish motorists just gets worse.
Crossroads and mini roundabouts become red alert zones; some drivers are just oblivious to other road users’ needs.

Virtually every day on the road I will encounter some threatening move from a motor vehicle. Brett Dixon, President, The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers
