Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: Birch's Brow, Ormskirk, L39 7HQ, United Kingdom


Today Sunday 4th December on the lanes of Lancashire. I was signalling to turn right into Greens lane from Formby lane whilst out cycling in Aughton, when a post office liveried vehicle OVERTOOK ME WHILST I WAS INDICATING TO TURN RIGHT! There was an oncoming car heading my way and I calculated that I could safely make the turn and not be at risk if I executed it correctly and not cut the corner. If I had turned before the corner in order to cut in then I would have been under the wheels of this driver and most probably have died or suffered life changing injury.
