Something we see regularly in our Near Miss if the Day feature is motorists carrying out dangerous overtaking manoeuvres on cyclists at points in the road where measures have been taken to prevent such incidents from occurring.
Today's, from West Yorkshire, is a classic example as the driver of a Boots Pharmacy van squeezes past a cyclist at a point in the road where white hatching followed by a traffic island is meant to highlight to motorists that they should not overtake because it is dangerous to do so at that location.
It was submitted by road.cc reader Philiip, who told us: "Yet again I find myself in Skipton falling foul of traffic calming measures.
"Just in the space of a few hundred yards I am accosted twice by drivers who can't understand that two into one wont go.
"This is a regular occurrence on this road and I wonder if any cyclists have actually been hurt or even killed here?"
He added: "I have contacted Boots asking then to have a word with their drivers, just awaiting a reply!"
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.
