Today after my first week of riding I had my first near miss, not a bad one but a reminder of everything I'd read and been told. I was sat at an intersection waiting to ride straight across, there was a car in front of me indicating right. Once the lights went green I slowly accelerated keeping an eye on the driver but he decided that I wasn't important enough to have right of way and turned right in front of me, we both slammed on the brakes and he waved sorry and looked suprised that I was trying to cross... I waved him through to make sure he was out of my way before continuing on. I guess I have to get used to this! I did remember the most useful tip that I was told in pre-learner training when this happens. Deal with it, then get over it immediately. It is not worth getting angry as this will make you and the rest of your ride even more dangerous.
