Journalist films daily commute to show how dangerous cycling in London is
A journalist has filmed his cycle commute for a month to show the dangers cyclists face every day in London.
The footage was filmed for Business Insider and shows the commute taking a turn for the worse on several occasions.
From buses carving him up to taxi drivers crashing into him, there are several examples of dangerous driving and very stressful moments which show cycling in London isn't the easiest of tasks.
This is made especially alarming when several pedestrians don't seem to pay attention and walk out in front of the cyclist who is traveling at speed.
It isn't just drivers that are caught behaving badly, though. The camera also catches several cyclists who flout the law by cycling through red lights or not looking where they are going.
The overall impression is that travel looks stressful in the capital, whatever mode of transport you choose.
