Always thought you go around a bend, maybe I'm mistaken.

the argument is lost if that's where we're at.
Well may would be the wrong word. fairly often would be better.

Late ambers was tossed around quite alot in my Cat D training and testing. Stop unless it is unsafe to do so. Covers alot. Gunning it would not be a reason

There's a bend on the crest of the over pass in question.

When I am on my motorbike, I filter through to the traffic light. When there I seem many more cars breaking a red than bicycles. When I move off when green, I always look right and left first as it is possible cars will still go through red. This is a daily occurrence.

Or you're getting into position to turn right?

As I replied to another guy, there's a junction at Palmerstown that I turn right at regularly so I usually get into lane a few hundred metres before. The road is too busy to change lanes at the last moment.

Which is when every prick in an Audi verbalises their faux outrage at the car in front of them doing the speed limit (or slightly above) and trying to go right.
