Is there a section about going over red lights or pulling out infront of cars unexpectedly?

There is, its the chapter after explaining how to deal with cars pulling out infront of you on roundabouts and junctions.

Hot deal.

I've no patience with fellow cyclists going through red lights, end of. There is simply no need and the reason I don't. Now, roundabouts and junctions are where most cyclists are in severe danger and we need to position ourselves in such a way that we won't get squeezed out. I "take the lane" and advise others to do so, especially at 'choke points' where motorists attempt to force past giving you a fag paper's gap. As a cyclist, if you do this, it is defensive riding. We're taught to do it as part of motorcycle training and it is vital for self-preservation.
For the sake of a couple of seconds, the drivers will be a couple of seconds later to their destination - build this into the commute time if you're cutting it to the wire every day? Attempting to avoid those couple of seconds' delay could result in life-changing injuries or death to a cyclist or other vulnerable road user.

I wish every driver of any vehicle was required by law to do a cycling proficiency test, followed by a motorcycle CBT BEFORE setting foot inside a 1.5 tonne kill box... Additionally, remove seat belts and airbags and put a big spike in the centre of the steering wheel - this will equate to the risk level experienced by the folks on 2 wheels.

I cycle, motorcycle and drive, so have some frame of reference - ride/drive safe and Merry Christmas all.

Great deal OP, thanks.

Very well said. I completely agree. We all need to be more courteous and better behaved towards each other. I'd also love to see cyclists call each other out for poor behaviour on the road, but my experience is it starts an argument which most people wouldn't want to start.

Totally off topic but I too agree! There are equal amount of people who don't know how to drive around cyclist and vice versa.

I too do all three (drive a car, ride a motorbike and commute by bicycle) and I'd say it's the best that anyone can do to understand how to interact and respect each other on the road.

You can tell the people in the "know" when cars give a wide birth when they overtake you or when cyclists notice you are moving out of their way and they thank you.

Even on my bicycle I get **** off with cyclists and cars who just don't think... But hey ho... Such is life. We might learn one day.

Drive/ride safe everyone, we only have one life and we all know it's precious.

Happy hols and Merry Xmas everyone

This is a very good article for both cyclists and drivers (i'm both)
