VIDEO: Trucks using Adelaide non-separated bikelane as express lane

Pretty humourous video from Scotland about giving cyclists space on the roads.  You can bet drivers give horses a lot of space here in Toronto (probably because they always have cops riding them). via: Cycling Scotland : See cyclist. Think Horse. [Commercial 2013] – YouTube.
