Accident Hot Spots – What They Look Like!

Accident Hot Spots – What They Look Like!

Here is an excellent Youtube video illustrating the hazards of a particular junction. In the first video, the cyclist comes across an accident that has already happened, leaving another cyclist laying across the road with a broken leg; the second segment of the video shows the cyclist travelling the same route and almost witnessing the exact same accident happening again. Fortunately, the second time ’round no one got injured.

Interestingly, another Youtube uploader has been catching the attention of a few cycling authorities after posting daily videos about his commute to work in London, notably around the Bow Roundabout. You may notice that a certain coloured superhighway features in both videos:

After documenting the state and conduct of the traffic twice daily for over a year, he was able to draw some interesting conclusions:

“I’ve been commuting over Bow Roundabout for a couple of years now. ‘Over’ would be the most appropriate description for the first year – as before the segregation was built along Stratford High Street, Bow Flyover was easily accessed and so I would use it.  Once the cycle segregation was built, it became much more difficult to get on to the flyover.”

“Interestingly, I see a worrying amount of bad behaviour from all road users, but certainly the video evidence suggests an inability for motorists to stop at red lights.

“Ever since the first days it was obvious it was, at best, an unusual place where anything can happen.”

I was pretty worried about what to do after the accident so I can’t thank you enough for taking that weight off my shoulders. Just got my cheque in the post too. Very happy!

I arrived at Gary Harris Cycles with a broken bike after a nasty crash. Immediately he put me in touch with the guys at CAMS. They were superb. Incredibly helpful, honest, efficient and professional.
