At least the traffic light wasn't red.

If that had been the MET, the tape no doubt would have been 'lost', if the MET had rammed a cyclist in a well lit street killing them in the process and driving on without a bye or leave, they wouldn't have charged their driver either, natch.

Amazing the difference between two forces and hopefully a lesson for all drivers, you could think that the 6 points is a bit high given that they were clearly focused on giving the cyclist a load of room and took their eyes off the ball elsewhere but if that was a pedestrian refuge with someone standing there it could easily have been a fatality.

We can only hope that the punishment for that level of driving is meted out to all but it's doubtful.

Hmm - I'd say the primary hazard was the car, or rather, the guy driving it.
