I was in her lane - obvious really.

This morning I got squeezed by a new grey Saab estate with child onboard approaching the QueensGate roundabout in Farnborough, she moved left into my lane and into my space even though I shouted a warning, she kept going until I had to brake to avoid a crash. Of course she had to stop at the traffic ahead so we had words.

She had to get into my space as she was in the wrong lane ....&\*\*&\^\^%

The on the way home in Ewshot village by the excellent Windmill pub a 4x4 cut the corner across the junction and nearly hit me head on - thanks.

Oh yes and before I forget Hampshire County Council's response to my complaint about the roundabout outside the Sun camps was that it was difficult and they would think about it some more but in the mean time if I wore something bright drivers would notice me better - very patronising, very helpful. Prompted me to send my MP an email.

I used the find your mp page on the house of common's website but it errored most appropriately with "connection reset by peer" , most amusing.

I was on my way to band practice this evening ans saw a cyclist nearly taken out by someone - approaching a mini-roundabout the road gradually widened out and the centre of the road had one of those wide "don't go here" stripy bits painted down the middle. The cyclist wanted to turn right, so quite properly indicated and pulled into the right hand lane. The car behind (driving too fast anyway) moved right, then across the stripy bit in the middle of the road, then across onto the wrong side of the road, then shot back left again in front of the cyclist just before entering the roundabout.

Boggle.

Hi Alan, The problem is that this happens all the time but the official statistics only count when the cyclist is injured. My unoffical survey on my way home at night has had up to 1 in 7 cars that overtake me are prepared to do suicidal overtaking for absolutely no gain! hence why I am talking to my MP ...... cheers tim
