Documentary looking at the conflict between cyclists and other road users.

Should be good for those of us who post in the many Cyclist vs Motorists threads.

Cor some of those 'accidents' look nasty.

What don't car drivers understand about them being safe inside their car.

They think they have the rights over the roads and that everyone should move out of the way of them

I agree with you, the first driver that had a chance to speak to him (shout at him) said something like "why don't you try signalling?". I don't see many cyclists indicating which way they are intending to move, I don't think I've ever seen one indicate they are slowing down.

Poor show is poor what's with all the gurning faces of the people being interviewed and stupid sound effect when we see the cyclist or driver who is abusing the road distracting from the content of the show!

I think some cyclists and car drivers can both be complete t*ts. I got nearly knocked down by a cyclist the other day as he was cycling the wrong way up a one way street and when I shouted at him he shouted at me as if it was my own fault! This week I've also been nearly hit by a car coming around a corner at high speed without indicating.

I wonder how many instances this program will show us of cyclists running red lights, not indicating, cycling on the pavement, cycling at night with no lights? Things I witness on a daily basis.

We have LOADS of cyclists round here. There is a junction with traffic lights, and at least once a week I see a cyclist going through on red - it's so scary.

And here we have a perfect example of whats happening on the road, except their circumstances are more dangerous.

In fact neither gentleman behaved well, neither was innocent or behaving correctly.
