I’ll *555 bad driving. Mainly in the van (I never seem to be on the same route long enough when on the bike plus the mobile is usually locked away and off), things like cars tailgating, poor driving, crossing the centre line for no reason etc.
As for myself, I try to ride the best I can, I feel I have good skills, but there is only so much you can do. Cars on the wrong side of the road around a blind corner or pulling into your path (be it intersections or passing)… it’s mainly luck.
You could wrap yourself in cotton wool and never leave home, but then people die at home too… life is short, live it.
