Do Cycle Lanes Stop Close Passes?

Not going by this mornings incident.

I normally take this road in primary position. It is a short distance to lights (there is always a queue) and I can keep up with the traffic here. However, my spidey sense was warning me of something behind. So I decided to move into the lane.

This lane is not the worst, but it still takes a cyclist into the door zone. So although I went into it, I stayed at the outer edge of the lane.

Have a look at the footage to see how close this driver got.

Will I be using this cycle lane again? Oh no.

And what about the driver and his daddies reaction? Not my problem. I don't care.

Mmmmm. And yet some people suggest that it is cyclists that are the problem.....
