Collisions at junctions
These most often happen at T-junctions but can happen at other junctions too, often because drivers fail to give way or stop.
Sometimes, drivers do not see a rider (even though they were in plain view, properly positioned and wearing high visibility clothing) or misjudge the time it takes the rider to arrive at the junction. Research shows that drivers have difficulty spotting a bike approaching, judging its speed correctly and estimating its time of arrival.
As you approach junctions, try to see where the driver’s eyes are pointing and whether its wheels are beginning to turn.
Consider how you would deal safely with the vehicle unexpectedly pulling out in front of you.
