  1. I don’t know the details in this case, but I’ve nearly been hit several times by taxis ‘diving’ into the footpath to grab a fare without looking properly for inside traffic. I hope she recovers soon.

  2. I hope AA Roadwatch’s obnoxious anti-cyclist Connor Faughnan doesn’t forget to add this incident to his dubious-sounding “Statistics” that he asserts prove there are less cyclists being hurt on our roads. There are lies, damned lies and (Connor Faughnan’s ) statistics.
