    Very good quality for a 12 camera, plod are going to love that as evidence for taking you to court. Not exactly the safest riding I've ever seen...

    Areas of white diagonal stripes or chevrons painted on the road. These are to separate traffic lanes or to protect traffic turning right.

    if the area is bordered by a broken white line, you should not enter the area unless it is necessary and you can see that it is safe to do so

    Mini-roundabouts. Approach these in the same way as normal roundabouts. All vehicles MUST pass round the central markings except large vehicles which are physically incapable of doing so. Remember, there is less space to manoeuvre and less time to signal. Avoid making U-turns at mini-roundabouts. Beware of others doing this.
    And nice overtake of a car which was already passing a parked bus

    Nice riding mattx. I haven't watched it all yet but a couple of points. You could have got past the BMW by going down the cycle lane, I'm sure the cyclist would have got out of the way. That would have got you to the zebra crossing in time to put the fear of God into the pedestrian. You also failed to give the appropriate hand-signal to the driver that forced you onto the wrong side of the bollard. Apart from that, great riding.

    What camera is it?

    have to be honest, this is breaking road safety in many places, and not sure i'd be posting up on here showcasing it.

    @mattx:

    Smooth riding like your style although you could have cut some of the fancy stuff out and made it home quicker, me thinks you were just showing off hehe!!

    A few points - we are allowed to ride in Bus / Cycle Lanes in and around London. The Areas of white diagonal stripes or chevrons painted on the road - You are allowed to ride in them, just don't cross them. I've been a biker most of my life and will only over-take where I think it's safe or I know I can do so without putting myself or others in danger. I know my limits and the limits of my bike.

    So that means that basic road laws don't apply to you then...I have been driving all my adult life and know my limits and those of my car...better hope you don't meet me coming the other way pulling some of the moves you seem to think are acceptable...

    If you don't like my style of riding - not my problem. You can sit quite happily in your traffic jam thanks........

    Woo. The angry car drivers are really coming out of the woodwork. Even a threat of running you over Matt.

    CESIL, if you supposedly know the limits of your car so well then why would anyone else in the road ever be in danger from you?

    Looked like a nice bit of riding to me, few parts I'd be more cautious over but that's just me. Nice use of the prime position throughout as well.
