    How silly of me not to realise that a painted white line on the road entirely eliminates the risk of a cyclist being killed by a car/van/lorry/etc.

    Wouldn't a 20 year old Focus be a better gift to ask for? 
    Less unusual smells and grotty bits, it would have seen less dubious fluids and rubber and would also have better handling. All round it would generally be a tighter and more exciting ride drive with less bits falling off or hanging down

    4 weldings and a funeral
    Charming but bumbling Charles (Hugh Grant) and friends love British chod. They especially love to bumble around in Charles' convertible Morris Minor but, after failing an mot, the Minor has to go for some welding. While collecting the car, Charles sees and has his head turned by the welder's 70s Cadillac.
    Over the course of 3 further trips to the welders, we witness Charles steadily fall for the Cadillac and eventually sell his Minor so he can pursue his dream of wafting around in American chod. Sadly a few years later the Minor finally succumbs to the tinworm and Charles reads a moving but bumbling eulogy at the funeral ceremony for the pile of crusty flakes that was once his pride and joy.

    There is no obligation on cyclists to use cycle lanes, they have as much right to use the majority of roads as any motorised traffic. 
    Where cycle lanes are not used it is often because the design and/or (lack of) maintenance of the cycle lane makes it dangerous to use.  In addition, the Department of Transport actually advises cyclists who travel over 15 mph to use roads instead of shared use cycle lanes due to the risks posed to/by pedestrians because of the speed differential.

    I agree that the hierarchy shouldn't be taken as removing responsibility from and granting impunity to some. Everyone has a role to play. 
    There is always an element of rules being guidelines and they should always be taken with a big pinch of "don't be a dick". 
    In aviation, all parties know they have a role in avoiding collisions/accidents (e.g. see and avoid, etc). There the hierarchy is based on ability to avoid the collision/accident. According to the hierarchy a jumbo jet should give way to a paraglider. Is any paraglider pilot deliberately going to put themselves in a position where they could collide with a jumbo? Only if they have a sudden desire to become an ex-paraglider (and/or a pre-cooked and wrapped burger if they go through an engine). 
    Aviation is lucky in that it still has a decent element of 'just culture' and recognises that accidents can and do happen without one party specifically being to blame for it. The emphasis tends to be on learning lessons from accidents and trying to reduce the chance of the same/similar accident happening again. 
    In driving, the approach is different. It seems someone has to be at fault for an accident. The emphasis tends not to be on preventing future accidents but on finding someone to blame for the accidents that do happen. 
     
    A lot of the Highway Code could be boiled down to "be considerate to others and don't be a dick". Unfortunately, that's a concept a lot of people don't seem to be able to put into practice.
