Spot the Hazards
In the illustration above, there are 2 cyclists approaching the back of a queue of traffic. The red cyclist intends to pass the queue on the right. The green cyclist intends to wait behind the queue and go through the intersection in the line of traffic.
Both cyclists need to watch for potential conflicts. Can you identify which hazards face the red cyclist, and which ones the green cyclist needs to identify? There are even potential conflicts the motorists need to look for. How might our cyclists predict the movements that are about to occur?
From the cyclists’ perspective some of the hazards are visible, others are not. A smart cyclist knows the generic conflicts (common crash types) that can happen at intersections. That was a hint. Other clues can be found here, here, here and here.
I made a little list of my own. I’ll be interested to see if you come up with things I missed.
