As a cyclist, I'd be riding about 4 - 5 inches from the NS white line with I guess a peddling sway side to side of about 2 - 3 inches tops, maybe a bit more with fatigue. It's not that hard to keep a relatively constant line..

Why cycle so far out into the lane? just because they can't nick you for it?? I can belch in a restaurant if I want, but I don't, as I know it will piss people off!!

That said, I cannot endorse the reactions of the driver, although, I do understand the frustration.

Just because you can keep a constant line doesn't mean the next person can, or should. The emphasis is on staying visible and if need be discouraging people like the driver shown. Whether the cyclist was primary or secondary, it doesn't mean the driver should be over-taking there and it doesn't mean they have the right to violently blame OTHER people for THEIR error.

The boss of the company and the police agree with this line. The cyclist wasn't prosecuted for anything. Seems the only people here who want the cyclist prosecuted, as well as abused and injured, are the server trolls who are getting closer and closer to their own, forceful removal and by virtue of their attitudes. Just like the driver in question.

p.s. I don't care what you do in a restaurant, it's nothing to do with what is shown here.

Justice has been served.

Hello everyone,
I regret to inform you that this car does not exist as of the 15/05/2017. It passed the MOT and I began driving home, only to crash into a car that did an emergency stop. I didn't react fast enough and my car smacked the boot of the car in front. Both our cars went up in flames. The women then said how it was my fault, despite him was the one breaking in the motorway. He sued me and I had to sell my car for parts, as it was broken. I'm now in debt. She laughed at my curly hair

I'm so sorry for my rant but like my other cyclist friends I only get out the house to go for a ride on my hard seated trusty bicycle. It's the only thing that gets me of world of Warcraft and Grindr, as a cyclist I bet this is a common issue for all of us..

I love cycling with big passion and there's nothing like my belly stretching out my small Lycra shirt and tins Lycra pants, I love it! I hate trolls, I may sound like every other cyclist, and I am very proud to be so! I hate trolls and women

Here you go Graham..even more people in this world you're against. Check the source at the bottom: write to them if you like, maybe it will be an education for ya..

--

Riding further out from the edge of the road is safer, faster, and helps prevent motorists from cutting you up.

Never hug the kerb. That's rule one of road positioning on a bicycle. You need to be further out into the road, sometimes right in the middle of the traffic stream. Less assertive cyclists worry that being further out may put them in the way of the traffic. It won't: you are the traffic. Being in the traffic stream helps you to get treated like traffic.

Reducing risk
It can feel safer to ride in or near the gutter. It isn't safer. It vastly increases the chances of drivers buzzing past you with inches to spare. You'll have to contend with drains, cambered surfaces, and debris like broken glass that has been 'swept' to the edge of the road by the action of car tyres. And you're less likely to be seen at all by drivers.

The commonest type of car-cyclist collision is the 'Sorry, mate, I didn't see you' variety. You must register in a driver's field of vision. You'll do that best by cycling where they are looking. Drivers look where their vehicle will be in the next few seconds, which is to say: ahead of them. They pay much less attention to people and objects in their peripheral vision.

Initially, you may feel exposed riding further out from the kerb. But it's very rare for cyclists to get rear-ended by drivers. Being safe is being seen – and forcing drivers to react to your presence.

Controlling your space
Drivers are obliged by the Highway Code (Rule 163) to give you 'at least as much room as a car' when overtaking. Let that sink in: at least as much room as a car. That means that they should pull out, cross the central, dashed white line, and pull in again.

By riding further out from the edge of the road, you force following traffic to overtake you properly instead of squeezing past dangerously close. Are you inconveniencing anyone? Only those drivers who would not have overtaken you safely in the first place.

As a rule of thumb, your distance from the kerb is the same distances that drivers will give you when overtaking.

How far from the kerb?
You never want to be closer than 50cm from the kerb. Often you'll be a metre out, sometimes more. The key factor is not so much the edge of the road as the location of the traffic stream on that road; that is, where cars are actually driving in that traffic lane.

There are essentially two cycling positions to choose from, relative to the traffic stream. One is the centre of the traffic stream – that is, the centre of the lane, rather than the centre of the road. You'll sometimes hear this called 'the primary position', but it's easier to think of it as 'taking the lane'.

The other position is about a metre to the left of the traffic stream, so long as that doesn't bring you too close to the kerb. Sometimes called 'the secondary position', you can think of it simply as 'not taking the lane'.

When to take the lane
If you can keep up with the traffic, such as around town, it's safest to take the lane. It's also the position to adopt when you want to dissuade drivers from doing something stupid, like cutting you up. Here's a non-exhaustive list of situations when it's best to take the lane.
• Approaching a pinch point, such as pedestrian island in the centre of the road.
• Approaching and negotiating a roundabout.
• Approaching Give Way markings.
• Approaching a side road, to prevent drivers from 'left-hooking' you and to help drivers on the side road to see you.
• Approaching traffic lights.
• Approaching a blind corner.
• Negotiating a junction.
• In queues of stationary traffic.
• Overtaking parked cars.

When not to take the lane
If you're not confident in taking the lane, especially when simply riding along, don't feel that you have to. If the road is busy and the traffic is moving faster than you can, either because it's a fast road or a steep hill, you're often better not taking the lane. This is a courtesy to drivers, enabling them to overtake you more easily.

Your safety is paramount, so you should not feel pressured not to take the lane. If a driver pips his horn at you, relax in the knowledge that he has seen you.

Changing positions
Unless you're taking evasive action, any change in position should be gradual – particularly when moving out to take the lane. Check back to see where any following traffic is, then gradually move into your new position. If you check back early enough, you may not need to signal to change your position within a traffic lane. Signal when you need to communicate your intention to drives who are closer.

Don't assume that you can move left to the secondary position without checking behind you. Around town, another cyclist or a moped rider may be about to 'undertake' you.

Specific to cyclists
Cyclists are allowed to ride two abreast, although most drivers are not aware of this. On fast or busy roads, it is courteous to single out to make it easier for drivers to pass. Cyclists are allowed to stop on double-yellow lines. Again, drivers may be unaware of this.

Finally, don't tailgate motor vehicles. It reduces your visibility – in both senses – and bicycles can't stop as fast as cars, so you risk rear-ending a car if it stops suddenly.

The video clearly shows enough. The van driver was trying to intimidate the cyclist, using their van as a weapon. The boss of the company agrees the van driver - post interview - was completely in the wrong.

Consider what happens when you bully someone with a couple of tons of metal. Consider what happens to someone when you RUN THEM OVER because you can't be bothered to abide by YOUR responsibilities - regardless of what other people may or may not have done.

As stated Graham, you are wrong on saying cyclists "MUST" stay "tight to the road" (whatever the hell that's supposed to mean). You are inventing your own laws and getting angry when those imaginary laws turn around and bite you in the ass. And you driver? Your comprehension of the Highway Code is simply dire.

I disagree with you on that one bud. Cyclists do not have to hug the side of the road. They can take primary position to stop cars passing too close if there are cars coming the other way. Or if the road condition is terrible/there's debris etc etc.

I don't know the background to the story, but as a cyclist myself I have to admit that the road did look pretty wide, probably wide enough for the van to get by without going over the line (even though it may be less than the legal 1 metre or something along that line). I personally don't really care how close a car passes as long as it's not enough to force me to take evasive action. But some people are more fussy, just like how most motorists don't care about waiting 2 seconds to overtake a bike safely whereas others swear and curse if they can't do double the speed limit on a country road.

However, my guess at the situation is that the cam rider and his buddy were riding 2 abreast (also legal, but I do believe that it should be single file it's a small group and the traffic is high), the van driver beeps hard and gets pissed off, cam bike takes it easy, and the videoed cyclist decides to take a stand.

Why do cars in central London ride in the middle lane then, Michael? Why don't they stay to the left and let the often faster moving traffic (cyclists and motorcyclists) get past? Why do they impede their path? Because I think we both know you are talking absolute shit.

On a bad bend you'd be the type of cyclist that gleefully hugs the curb whilst some prick in a van (no names mentioned!!!) cuts the corner and turns you into mince meat. You'd have zero escape route, zero control. Just ride in the gutter and prey for the best..I mean it's not even like it's the driver's responsibility to only overtake where it is both safe and practical. Fuck that, eh Michael?

You then ask why ride in the middle of the lane, why tap the van? Are you a joke? Riding in the middle of the lane is LEGAL. If you're so close to someone that that fear for their person and this tap your property in direct FEAR FOR THEIR LIFE in response to what YOU have done, then it's time YOU got off the roads!! Durrrr..is it sinking in? Is BEING TOO CLOSE starting to strike a few brain cells deep inside that head of yours?

Before you mouth off on here you should get your facts right. Unlucky for you the Manager of this company has calmly and collectively addressed the situation, taken an interview with the driver and decided their actions were WHOLLY unacceptable. You do NOT use your vehicle as a weapon! Understand it. Respect it. Learn from it or in the choice language you only seem to understand and respect - fuck off our roads..

'A white van driver filmed forcing a cyclist off the road by swerving at him has caused a storm on social media, with one renowned QC offering free legal advice to sue.'

Source: http://road.cc/content/news/222195-video-van-driver-forces-cyclist-road-qc-offers-help-sue

Quote Response from company via Facebook:

"I am writing this letter to express my sincere apologies to the cyclist that was very unfortunate to experience a very irresponsible and dangerous move by an engineer driving one of Vidette's vehicles on Sunday 30th April.

My wife and I are both very keen cyclist ourselves so fully appreciate the impact/trauma that a near miss like this would have on anyone in this situation.
I have now interviewed the driver and can honestly say the he is so full of remorse and fully understands how lucky he and the cyclist have been on this occasion and swears to never let himself get into a position like this again He stated that he was having personal problems with his family and his mind “was all over the place” and that he is so sorry. I do believe him and could tell his apology was genuine, however we cannot condone nor let this behaviour have any place within our company, we have decided to make an example here and to promote driver awareness going forward. He has been dismissed from immediate effect!
This experience has made me realise that I can do something to help reduce this sort of behaviour on our roads so have decided to introduce a driver awareness course into our already busy H&S training matrix for all our employees. The AA seem to have a nice one called Driver Alertness Education, I have actioned this to be investigated & organised immediately.
Adding to the above, I have had full backing & agreement in these decisions from all of our management team.
I hope this letter will also be of comfort to the other road users & cyclists who have written their concerns.

NB - I was on holiday until early this morning which made an immediate answer nigh on impossible. I understand that the vast majority of mails and social media comments are from concerned genuine people however, we received some really hurtful mails wishing all sorts of medical curses on our office staff which swayed me into taking down the access from our web site & social media pages.

Sincere apologies,

Ian Frazer
Managing Director

Sounds promising and the correct action used (so long as it's not bullshit which is possible)
There is no need for any driver to react in such a manner but especially those in work vehicles
All we need to do now is find some way of shaming those self employed one man/white van drivers
But also ensure that the authorities (including the police/CPS) act upon complaints rather than give the normal response "no injury" or "it was 50/50"

I've raised an official complaint with the HQ of the police as there seems to be a big misunderstanding/lack of communication/failed management direction regarding dashcam footage not being acceptable evidence. (ie RLJ and using mobile whilst driving). Hopefully quoting Giles York's quote will ensure action will be taken with dashcam evidence.
https://www.driving.co.uk/news/nicked-by-dashcam-the-in-car-cameras-turning-drivers-into-cops/
"The police are actively encouraging drivers to submit their footage. “Whenever a member of the public witnesses or records a video of an offence, we would encourage that person to bring the evidence forward to police to investigate. With motoring offences, videos filmed from dashboard-mounted cameras are admissible as evidence, assuming that the quality is good and the evidence can be corroborated,” says Chief Constable Giles York of the National Police Chiefs’ Council."

All we have to do now is make sure the police act and the CPS don't "write off" the dangers.

This van driver deserves more than the sack but the boss has done what he can do

This is a bloke in his company van trying to make a living, and this horrible twat on the bike riding in the middle of the lane will soon be flattened by a lorry / bus / van, the cyclists is clearly at fault here but the van driver maybe shouldn't have held his horn down, for the do gooders putting company addresses on here........ you are horrible scum, put your self in the position of the van driver.

If you REALLY were a "very active" cyclist Steve, then how come your knowledge regarding cycle craft is apparently so dire? Are you REALLY nothing more than a troll using a different name...?

Steve, so you're agreeing with the troll's false accusation? How had the cyclist "obviously" been antagonising the driver prior to the horn? It's double white lines and the cyclist wasn't going slow. The double white lines are there fore a reason.

You then say the cyclist was in the middle of the lane..and? Don't you realise this is perfectly legal and ininstances like this, recommended by ALL respected cycle craft guides, including even the government's own advice?

A car/truck doing daft/dangerous things on a blind bend would have little room to avoid anything. The same scenario with a car or truck over-taking a cyclist would risk the passing vehicle hitting the cyclsit; either directly or indirectly.

There is NO "law" that says cyclists have to stay near the curb at all times. None. Zero. The cylist has the same rights as cars and had full, legal entitlement to this road. If the cretin in the van doesn't want to treat them as equals - as per a requirement of their license and the law - then they are a danger to themself and others and should NOT be driving.

The van driver used a tonne and a half of metal as a weapon. He tried to kill someone. No defence.

I am a very active cyclists and I agree that the bike had obviously been antagonising the van driver prior to him holding the horn down, the Cyclist is in the middle of the lane and I agree he will prob do this on a bad road and a car / truck leaving a blind corner would have little chance to avoid the cylclist if he chooses to ride in the middle of the road. Sad as he could learn the lesson the hard way, instead of just keeping in to the side of the road like most law abiding cyclists.

What is "clear" in this video is the driver using a vehicle as a weapon, then failing to stop at the scene of a collision with a cyclist. Deal with this.

How is the cyclist clearly at fault?

What is your problem with legal road positioning?

Have you seen the criticism of the driver, including the rating? Whether he is driving for business or pleasure has no bearing. The company address is public domain and does infer anything other than a first port of call. Would you rather they didn't know? Would you rather society not have the right to film a public place?

Wow, whatever the opinions are of the cyclist there's absolutely no defence for the van driver's actions. To intentionally ram a vulnerable road user is criminal, pure and simple. Ban him and jail him for attempted murder.

Up until 0:05 there were double white lines, and a narrow lane. The van driver could not cross those lines AND safely overtake the cyclist. So tailgating him and blaring on his horn was out of order.
After 0:05 the cyclist moves over to the left to let the van driver overtake. However the van driver being a complete **** swerves his van into the cyclist. The cyclist was lucky that he wasn't knocked off. This should be reported to the police as the van was clearly used as a weapon.

The cyclist wasn't in the middle of the road. They were in the middle of the lane, which is legal.

He could not safely overtake the cyclist because the friggin cyclist was in the middle of the road.

back it up. Prove the cyclists "did all this" on purpose. Your logical fallacy doesn't suffice. Fact: the van didn't stop at the scene of an accident. Fact: there's double white lines on that road, on bend, for a reason. Fact: The cyclist was braking no laws riding primary. Fact: the van swerved violent towards the cyclist and didn't stop. If you think this is acceptable driving and you are on some kind of cyclist-hating crusade then you shouldn't be near a vehicle..

The cyclists put their hand out to alert the driver they were too close - if you can put your hand out and touch their vehicle, then they ARE too close.

Furthermore the cyclists position was as mentioned, legal and consistent. They did not swerve into the van - the van swerved into them.

The van driver tail-gating and horning, using a vehicle as a weapon. Instead of waiting they went past and drove into a vulnerable road user. Has this been reported to the police?

I do think the cyclist could have been further to the left but he had no obligation to and anyway it's no excuse for the van driver to lean on his horn aggressively and then use his van as a lethal weapon. Hope this has been reported to the police as the van drivers behaviour is unacceptable.

Really Q? First there is a difference between middle of the road and middle of the lane. Riding closer to the edge is not safer. Your arse has clearly been nowhere near a cycle seat. I guess you are more familiar with sniffing them. The very reason the cyclist is this IS because he is very aware, no need to go on an awareness course.

What a stupid thing to do, Crazy absolute crazy action from van driver, Question to cyclist, Why are you so far into the middle of the road when it would be safer riding closer to the edge buddy, Also cyclist do not go hitting 3/4 ton of metal as it may hit you back in a total different way as in this video, Both driver and cyclist need drivers/riders awareness courses

first of all that van driver needs knicking, secondly that cyclist with you his friend knew what you both were doing as to cycling right in the middle of that road as to getting a reaction for your video footage for youtube, so easy to get that video removed from youtube by the way, yes its illegal to overtake on double white lines but there would have been ample room for the van to pass the cyclist if the knob had giving room, finally i somewhat feel pissed at the cyclist for taking a swipe at the van and then thats when the van swerved to scare the cyclist, learn to control what you do on the road people as somewhere someone is sitting waiting to record you for youtube and brag to their friends " look what happened to me today" and you called me boring, next time you may not be so lucky as next time it may be a stolen motor with an arse ole of a driver that dont give a fuck about life

The road markings clearly state no overtaking (unless to overtake a pedal cycle, horse or road maintenance vehicle if they are travelling at 10mph or less) which from my perspective the cyclist was travelling faster.

As stated the cyclist does not need to stay to the left - it's advisory but in some instances the cyclist should take primary like in this instance to stop any overtaking. The reason to stop the overtaking is because the road markings already clearly define the section of road to be unsafe to overtake.

The van driver should be jailed and banned from driving for 5 years and to pass as advanced driving test on completion of the ban - but hey ho I'm not in charge and he'll probably get a caution

But when he does it again and kills someone then hopefully this evidence can be used to show that the police and the justice system failed in it's duty to protect the innocent

Where's Oliver Queen when you need him ;)

The cyclist is traffic. They are entitled to use the lane. If you can't deal with Iggy then you shouldn't be on the road.

Hmm.."lane".."lycra". Been here before haven't you, Iggy? Do we need to see you having the same IP as the moronic trolls on here..........?????

Fact - the van driver was wrong and should be arrested and punished for doing this. But..... I'm waiting for the "riding central" and "taking the lane" mularky that is used in defence of fuckwittery cycling like this. There was no need to be cycling in the middle of the lane (note, I said lane, not road, for all the lycra clad pedants out there).Clearly a lot more history than the neatly edited clip reveals. The cyclist's reaction (or lack of) when he is driven off the road clearly shows he was expecting this after deliberately provoking the van driver.
