Re: Common Sense
My take as a motorist, cyclist, motorcyclist and licensed HGV driver (large horsebox).
Some cyclists will and do squeeze up the left hand side of lorries that are waiting and indicating to turn left, even when there is no cycle lane and barely enough room. They will then attempt to out-drag the truck.
When they are level with the driver door they are invisible with standard mirrors.
I have an extra mirror to cover that blind spot and a passenger who has the job of checking for suicyclists.
I wouldn't attempt what they do on my bicycle or on my motorbike.
The number of cyclists who will now stop and wait in the queue in a safe place is increasing now, thank goodness.
