For today's instalment in our regular series we'd rather not have to run, a dangerous driver doesn't appear to grasp that what she did was dangerous and illegal - even stopping to tell the victim that she'd brought it on herself.
Dr Hanne Bruhn was cycling in Aberdeenshire, and moved out to overtake a row of parked cars. You'd think the other option would be pretty ill-advised... however that appeared to go over the head of a driver who still decided to overtake with inches to spare while Dr Bruhn was avoiding the obstacles.
Stopping her vehicle, the driver can be heard saying: "You're cycling all over the road. Cyclists are supposed to be in at the side.
"Yes you are. You're all over the bloody road."
Dr Bruhn tells the driver she is recording the incident. The driver replies: "I haven't got an issue with that, I haven't done anything."
When asked on Twitter how she was supposed to avoid the parked cars and stay at 'the side' of the road, Dr Bruhn replied: "I'm a superhero and can fly".
She also told road.cc it is unlikely she will be involving the police, saying that her local force "are probably struggling as it is and usually not much help up here."
> Near Miss of the Day turns 100 - Why do we do the feature and what have we learnt from it?
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.

A bit strict. After three pints and a curry, I may fail this test sitting on my bicycle!
I'm assuming that your invention of the paramedic having a Phd in biomechanical impact assessments is deep irony.

Your analysis is a bit melodramatic dont you think? Who is this mysterious "they" you refer to?
I would hope that that they're not so crazy as to physically assault someone that ignores them. That said, if one of them was, there'd be a slight...

One might hope that their Bike Bureau would do a spot: https://road.cc/content/news/bbc-launches-bike-bureau-netherlands-301081
