I can definitely understand why riders are sick and tired of not being seen and complain about the mental awareness of drivers and the complete lack of it they have. Had the typical almost-cut-off-by-a-car-from-side-street experience all riders know and love while coming home from uni. the difference between the usual circumstances and this one is quite scary however. About 3 or 4 car lengths from the intersection, the driver decided no one was coming and it was safe to pull out. then quickly realised there was infact something coming. In this occasion the driver was very lucky. It would have been much more destructive than the bike into car crash that might happen, albeit much safer to the rider. I was in a bus. We complain constantly about people not looking, looking right through us, and cutting us off. How can we expect them to see us when they cant see a bus?
