Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: Pacific Highway, Mount Kuring-Gai New South Wales 2080, Australia


Gosford Towing truck driver close-passed a blind cyclist, using horn to intimidate. This is an 80km/hr zone where the minimum passing distance is 1.5m. There was plenty of time for the driver to change into the empty lane to pass, but instead they decided to perform a dangerous close pass and sound their horn. Note that the cyclist at the rear of the tandem was wearing a high-vis vest with the words "blind cyclist" on it.
