Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: a Queen Victoria Street, Fremantle Western Australia 6160, Australia


We were a group of four riders heading south on Queen Victoria Street in Fremantle approaching the corner of Parry Street. We occupy the centre lane, the only lane allowed for continuing straight, the left lane is turn left only, the right lane is for turning right only, the traffic light is red. A white car is stopped in the left lane, a white BMW convertible is approaching from behind. The traffic light turns green before we get to the intersection and start rolling through, the white car that had stopped at the red light starts to move forward, turning left. The white BMW straddles the line delineating the right and centre lanes then turns left (from the right turn only lane) in front of the cyclists and the other white car, missing the lead cyclist by a small margin.
