It was fairly obvious the car was thinking of turning right. Cyclists and motor bikes may be allowed to pass stationary traffic on the right doesn't mean they should do so regardless of what's happening.
    Exactly. And you can see where the car began the turn long before the biker began to react. You cannot assume that they will notice your approach and cease their maneuver because you are coming.

    Anything which potentially removes cyclists from the roads must be supported and applauded .

    They do not pay tax and unlike motorists they use no fuel .

    We need fuel tax revenue to build roads and lots of other things .
    How dare this minority breed of selfish misers get in the way of wealth producers .

    Outrageous .

    As a road user, whatever the letter of the law, the more vulnerable you are the more you need to pay attention and protect yourself.

    I am a pedestrian, a cyclist, a biker and a car driver and as such I’d say yes, the car driver should have indicated and is probably legally at fault but the cyclist is the idiot.
