Am I the only one who basically never has near misses these days? (Probably jinxing myself by making this post) It's partly that the commute is pretty short these days, but I think it's just roadcraft and experience and defensive riding. I don't mess about - I split both stationary and slow-moving traffic, launch reasonably hard off the line, definitely don't ride like a granny. But I also watch, defend my space, make room, assume people will do the worst, have a pretty good guess when someone is going to drive badly, am extra cautious once someone has made one mistake in front of me, and so on. And it'll be months between anything that even remotely corresponds to an incident, and even then it'll be a swearword in the helmet and a dab on the brakes, and barely an extra heartbeat. I don't think I'm special: speak up if this is your experience too.
