Here's something we haven't seen before in our Near Miss of rhe Day series - a driver making a close pass on a cyclist then stopping a little further down the road to apologise and accept full responsibility.
It happened Leicestershire to road.cc reader Kieran, who told us: "Please excuse the out of breath me. I was going for a PB ride home on the carbon road bike and that kind of blew it
"That was Kegworth (where I live) I was less than a mile from home. He caught me on Station Rd and we turned onto Nottingham Road."
We featured a couple of videos from Kieran yesterday showing two close passes from the same driver just 10 days apart.
The motorist involved in those incidents subsequently received a visit from the police and was said to be "very apologetic."
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.
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. 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.
