Incident type: Close pass/Bad driving
Location of incident: b Saint James Avenue, Bentleigh Victoria 3204, Australia


While riding an enclosed velomobile in a quite back street, an aggressive rubbish truck speeds up to overtake. As the truck overtakes it swerves to miss a parked car on the other side of the street cutting closely in front of the velomobile and takes the lane that if I had continued to pedal would have occupied and possibly been run over.
