There was also the controversial documentary aired by the BBC,  "War on Britain's Roads", which has attracted support and condemnation from cyclists and drivers alike.  But you need to remember to take extra care when towing.

I read this morning about  three  cyclists who were knocked off their bikes by a horse box.   It was being towed by a 4x4, which overtook them leaving insufficient space.  They were struck by the horse box, not the car.  Drivers need to give extra room and take extra precautions when towing.   They probably underestimate the length of their vehicle and in a moment of lapsed concentration may forget they are actually towing something.

It only takes a second to change someone's life forever. It seems that the cyclists have all sustained injuries  which  are impacting not only on them but their friends and family.  See the blog from one of the cyclists which explains not only the physical injury but also the loss of confidence. 

I wish these  three  speedy recoveries and hope their Christmas' aren't too disrupted.
