The latest submission to our Near Miss of the Day feature will be familiar to anyone whose bike commute involves riding in a bus lane - a bus driver overtaking far too closely only to pull in almost immediately at a stop.
Sent in by road.cc reader Jamie, it was filmed on Clapham Road in south London, close to Stockwell Underground Stations and also highlights just how woefully inadequate London's first generation of blue-painted 'Cycle Superhighways' are.
Jamie told us: "There is a protected cycle lane on the junction which is part of Cycle Superhighway 7. As I was crossing over the junction with some other cyclists I heard the bus to my right sound its horn.
"The bus then accelerated and pulled in front of us, there were at least 10 cyclists behind me as this cycle route is very busy during rush hour. #
The bus driver put on his hazard lights as an apology. I did not speak to the bus driver, there seemed no point because this was obviously deliberate, i just carried on to work."
He added: "I haven't notified TfL for the usual reasons that they are unlikely to care."
For in-depth information on issues of safety relating to London's buses and vulnerable road users, head over to cycling and pedestrian campaigner Tom Kearney's Safer Oxford Street blog; it's now almost eight years since he was left in a coma when he was struck by a bus while standing on the pavement as he waited to cross the busy shopping street.
Over the years road.cc has reported on literally hundreds of close passes and near misses involving badly driven vehicles from every corner of the country – so many, in fact, that we’ve decided to turn the phenomenon into a regular feature on the site. One day hopefully we will run out of close passes and near misses to report on, but until that happy day arrives, Near Miss of the Day will keep rolling on.
If you’ve caught on camera a close encounter of the uncomfortable kind with another road user that you’d like to share with the wider cycling community please send it to us at info [at] road.cc or send us a message via the road.cc Facebook page.
If the video is on YouTube, please send us a link, if not we can add any footage you supply to our YouTube channel as an unlisted video (so it won't show up on searches).
Please also let us know whether you contacted the police and if so what their reaction was, as well as the reaction of the vehicle operator if it was a bus, lorry or van with company markings etc.
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
