Even with the poor quality video I managed to see the cyclist.
It's amazing how many motorists are able to see unlit cyclists.
Wearing hi-vis clothing and being lit up like a knocking shop on payday makes cyclists invisible.
Maybe motorists should obey the rule about being able to stop within the distance they can see to be clear.

Precisely. No comparison to human vision - which is often obstructed,
not aided, by bright lighting.
