Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: Kingsbury Road, Birmingham, B35 6HH, United Kingdom


All of the traffic was following the Highway code and giving me a cars width as they
passed me on my bicycle when the Mercedes van approached me in the left lane. The
van could not pull out to the right as there was a BMW SUV passing it so instead the
driver held their speed and passed me without even leaving the left lane coming
dangerously close to hitting me and giving me a fright. Fortunately I did not wobble,
swerve to avoid something or get hit by a gust of wind as we would have collided.
Reported to the police but no idea of the outcome.
