A very clever cycling awareness test from the UK - would it work here?

Recommended Posts

The only problem I had was I never gave a thought to a cyclist or bicycle watching this. 😎

I only love Mountain Bikers , or Folks going to work on them. The rest are a bloody pest in their clown suits.

You're not meant to plant petunias until May is out?  That explains all the gardeners on the Brexit threads then.  Or maybe the Tories are waiting for the petunias to be out before planting May?

Only noticed the clock change.

 

Dubious about the message getting across in Thailand.

Average video, no it won't work.

I cycle a lot about 250km a week and I'd say Thais are mostly careful around cyclists, better than car drivers in the UK

The problem is not that cyclists are invisible to drivers, the problem is speed of the drivers and the assumption that a cyclist or indeed a pedestrian will continue on a predicted course - so no need to slow down or give them a wide berth - no risk perceived for the motorist!

 

Now place a buffalo on the side of the road you will see a slightly more careful approach by the majority of motorists!!

Does too much damage if you hit a buffalo.......there are tractors now, buffaloes are almost food only, be it for dogs or humans

It's a two-way street (no pun intended). If cyclists all had lights on their bikes, didn't ignore traffic lights, didn't suddenly move out without looking, looked when entering a main road and looked behind before swerving to miss a drain cover (or similar) then they might be a bit safer.
