This could have been avoided totally if the cyclist had not gone up the
inside. Drivers just do not realise how stupid cyclists can be.

Can you quote the part of that report which states the cyclist was
undertaking or had undertaken the truck?

Failing that, can you quote the part of that report which suggests the
cyclist was undertaking or had undertaken the truck?

Yes:
"The driver was in the cycle box so we couldn't get in front" therefore the
cyclists came up the inside.

Brilliant. Paint an ASL in the road but leave a lamp post in the killing
zone.

I agree, don't overtake the first vehicle in a queue (ASL or not, left or
right) unless you can be sure it is going to stay there for some time.

Drivers just do not realise how stupid cyclists can be.


Then we see the source of the real stupidity. Interesting how many reports
of left turn victims seem to be about women. If there is a pattern, what are
men doing differently?

That suggests nothing of the sort.

It suggests this:
The cyclists were in the cycle box when the truck pulled alongside by
going into the cycle box. The cyclists could not get ahead of the
truck because that would mean going leaving the cycle box.

The boy-friend:
"I do not blame the driver but there are many kinds of people on the road and
everything needs to be made stupid-proof so even a kid can understand how to
use it."

That's not a very nice thing for him to say about his girl-friend - speaking
ill of the dead.

Even more relevant : can you quote the bit where the driver was found guilty of
an offence.

Oh dear :

"If Miss Fernandez was five metres ahead in the cycling box Mr Grant would
have seen her."
