Today's video in our Near Miss of the Day feature technically doesn't fit into the category, with the cyclist involved left with a sore arm after he was struck by a horse box being towed by a van. The driver passed him at a four-way junction, when the cyclist had a green light.
It happened just over a week ago to road.cc reader Andrew as he did a recce of the course of September's Manchester 100km bike ride.
He told us: "I was lucky not to have been knocked into the pavement.
"Thankfully, Cheshire Police were extremely supportive and are going to have a word with the driver."
Andrew added: "The driver clipped my right upper arm, which was sore for days."
The video is typical of many we have seen in the series where a driver towing something cuts in too quickly after the front of the vehicle has passed a cyclist, meaning they become squeezed between the trailer and the kerb.
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.
