I knew he was most unlikely to be charged, notwithstanding powerful evidence handed over on a plate in the form of a video, an extract of which I have put back up onto youtube. (Forgive my swearing I initially thought it was going to be worse than it was).
Why not send him, and other drivers like him on a bikeability training course (the full cost of which they would of course pay) as an alternative to a prosecution?
On the bright side I did get a full prompt payout from his insurers, so credit to them.
EDIT: I do not want to get too bogged down in this but in deference to those who have expressed the view that I was wholly or partially to blame for this collision I attach a google earth aerial view of the location. On any sensible view I stopped well short of the junction. Perhaps the film does not clearly show this. It seems obvious to me but then I was there. The camera is attached to my head and so is moving about a bit even after I have stopped with my foot on the ground. I am a bit sceptical of those who claim that if it had been them they would have stopped even further back, or who claim that it was not safe to use the hatched area to overtake.
I know this will not convince some (nothing will because I was on a bicycle). I have made some people cross by deleting their comments. I regret this but the one that remains is a reasonable representation of their views and there is no point in having it over and over again.
This is just about where I stop, just short of the zig-zags
