I suspect that responses to this (if I get any) will be split fairly evenly but here goes anyway.
If the ANZAC Highway slipstreamers hit some debris or a pot hole because they were too close to the bus/truck etc and unable to see the danger, does the fault lie with the rider for riding to close to the bus or would we get another winge fest about the state of the roads.
I always thought I was too good looking to run the risk of kissing the back of a bus, so I keep my distance
Whatever you look like the back of a bus probably won't improve your looks.
If a car was tailgating there would be no question of who was in the wrong if they rear ended someone.
So why if a cyclist was to rear end someone would there be any difference?
