The numerical speed or whether or not it's within the speed limit is irrelevant. At the speed they were travelling, given their proximity to the opposing traffic, they were not able to anticipate and respond to hazards.Dont know where some of you get the view on speed, the car they passed was doing 35-37 Kph THATS KPH (22 MPH) when they passed it, and they weren't going that much faster than it, still well below the speed limit for the area.
Agreed.Here is a thought, if the car driver can not see, then dont turn. In my part of the world, she is a very clear :turn in the face of oncoming traffic" or "Drive without due care and attention" breach.
The second sentence is the reason.FFS I really don't get how anyone could think its the riders fault.
Point of the matter is - there are stupid drivers everywhere, be aware.
I don't think that anyone is suggesting that the collision wasn't legally the fault of the car driver.I continue to be amazed at the attitude that the riders are at fault.
Yes I can see how you heard those bells, they were riding below the speed limit in the area in a reasonable non aggressive manner moving ahead of the traffic.I watched a pair of riders behave in a way which instantly triggered alarm bells.
