Well I suspect we have all faced this problem on the road,while not wanting to endanger the cyclist most drivers will pass them with what amount of road they can afford to give them given oncoming traffic. We have now entered a new era of passing a cyclist where there is assumed safe distance as highlighted by undercover cops riding bikes around the midlands,this resulted in a truck driver getting 5 points and over a £1000 fine. It would seem we can now loose our licence even though we have not had a at fault accident,after all the truck driver did not hit anybody. I suppose we might expect this to be extended to us car drivers,after all not many of us get through a days driving without slowing and passing a oncoming car with maybe a foot or less between our door mirrors,maybe undercover cops driving cars will be able to prosecute us for not hitting them. As always the Highway code makes a idiot of itself,by showing a photo of a car passing a cyclist on the other side of the road,as you would if you passed a horse and rider,totally forgetting you are dealing with a animal which is unpredictable and not a machine ridden by a person.
