Our regular feature highlighting close passes caught on camera from around the country – today it’s Staffordshire

Today's video in our Near Miss of the Day series shows a tractor driver, towing a trailer, overtaking a cyclist - and giving him very little room as he passed.

It's not the first time we've featured a tractor in the series - remember this one from July last year?

As in that video, the first thought of the cyclist in the latest one was to get out of the way - only there was nowhere for him to go.

It was submitted by road.cc reader Jon Tonkinson, who told us: "I could hear the tractor behind me for some distance.

"I couldn't move to let him pass as there was not a footpath.

"It happened in Teddesley Road, Penkridge, Staffordshire

"I haven't reported the incident to the police as without a vehicle registration number they will not be able to take any action," he added.

Over the years road.cc has reported on literally hundreds of close passes and near misses involving badly driven vehicles from every corner of the country – so many, in fact, that we’ve decided to turn the phenomenon into a regular feature on the site. One day hopefully we will run out of close passes and near misses to report on, but until that happy day arrives, Near Miss of the Day will keep rolling on.

If you’ve caught on camera a close encounter of the uncomfortable kind with another road user that you’d like to share with the wider cycling community please send it to us at info [at] road.cc or send us a message via the road.cc Facebook page.

If the video is on YouTube, please send us a link, if not we can add any footage you supply to our YouTube channel as an unlisted video (so it won't show up on searches).

Please also let us know whether you contacted the police and if so what their reaction was, as well as the reaction of the vehicle operator if it was a bus, lorry or van with company markings etc.

He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
