Saw the post below a few weeks ago in numerous newspapers and it got me thinking?!
Do we as motorists look closely enough for cyclists and runners etc., especially with the poor visibility with the bad weather and the dark nights rolling in?
Do these road users have less rights on the roads than cars etc?
The obvious answer is no, of course they don’t, they are as much entitled to be anywhere on our roads, as we are, the motorists.
So, I guess what I’m saying is, that here @ Amber Driving Tuition, we are saying stay safe & make sure that you ALWAYS, but especially over the winter period, make sure you’re paying extra attention & looking out for all vulnerable road users, because if Olympic Gold medallist & Tour de France winner, Bradley Wiggins can be knocked off, then everyone else, especially children etc. must be extra vulnerable!
“Bradley Wiggins was taken to hospital with broken ribs last night after being involved in a collision with a car close to his home in Lancashire.
The Tour de France winner also sustained hand and wrist injuries in what Team Sky described as a “minor accident.” It is not thought his injuries will keep him out of the sport for any significant length of time. He was scheduled to be kept in hospital overnight for observation and sent home today.
The incident occurred when a Vauxhall Astra pulled out of a petrol station in the village of Wrightington, near Chorley in Lancashire at around 6pm and collided with Wiggins, who was knocked off his bike. Wiggins, who is in light post-season training in the wake of his remarkable year, was described by a witness to the accident as “being in a lot of pain.”
