Incident type: Close call
Location of incident: Klosterstern 67, 20149 Hamburg, Germany


There are many close calls at this roundabout: The bike lane is the outer lane, and vehicles drive on the inner one. So when vehicles exit, they have to cross the bike lane - and many do so without taking any care - admittedly, as it's all curved bikes are quite hard to see from the driver's seat. It's a really bad design and potentially deadly combination.

I use this roundabout frequently and am always prepared to slam the brakes - so I was this time, which prevented me from getting under the wheels.
