There are many risks involved in cycling and a considerable number of these risks are the result of the actions of negligent motorists.

For all road users, it’s vital to complete full observations before carrying out any manoeuvre or getting out of a vehicle. One of the most common accidents involving cyclists occurs when a motorist opens the door of their vehicle without first checking for oncoming traffic. Motorists making a manoeuvre without checking their mirrors may not spot a cyclist alongside their vehicle. In town and cities, in order to allow traffic to flow freely, cyclists often have to take up a road position close to the off-side of parked vehicles, placing them at increased risk of an accident involving busy commercial drivers who have double parked to make a quick delivery and taxi drivers executing u-turns to collect a fare.
