Sorry, poor quality due to starting clip whilst at speed!

You should be able to make out that I'm approaching a left junction with a van waiting to pull out. Quickly becoming visible is a cyclist waiting in the right side of the opposing lane to turn right into the side road.

Then a driver forces their car through the gap between both and the other cyclist. This is a new level of dangerous on this infamous road. I was jumpy about the car being less than 2 foot from me, it can't have missed the other cyclist by more than a foot.

The numberplate begins with "KF51".

Minimally, breaking "Highway code rule 163".
As the Highway code picture shows, why isn't the driver all the way over the central line? Well, there's a bike.

So with this case there's a strong argument for the next level up. Arguably, something along the lines of Careless Driving really should apply here.
