There is no law that says it is illegal to overtake a car on its inside.
There is a rule for drivers to watch out for this and check their nearside door mirror before moving to the left.

151: In slow-moving traffic. You should be aware of cyclists + motorcyclists who may be passing on either side



Equally rules 72 and 73 for cyclists should be looked at!!!

Particularly the bit in rule 72 which says:"*Do not* ride on the inside
of vehicles signalling or slowing down to turn left". Which the cyclist
in this incident clearly did.


The driver only signalled at the last minute, he should have done it well before the junction to give the cyclist a sporting chance.



"Sporting chance"? - I'm sorry - it wasn't a race - despite what the cyclist
thought.

I bet he lost more than the 3.7secs he was trying to shave off his best time to
work.
