Am a cycle commuter for past 6 years, and use the bike daily for work and for getting around. In Dublin.
I've had a more 'near misses' than normal in the past few weeks.
Last week, for second time ever - car hit me on the bike - wing mirror clipped the handlebar as he was pulling over to the left (to drop someone off I think). Fortunately in very slow traffic.
Week before I was a half second from going flying when parked car opened driver door in front of me.
And I've had quite few drivers leaving 50/60cms on an overtake, leaving me feeling very comfortable.
Mostly young-ish men and women. I get the sense that a lot of people, more than before, are driving around with a phone on their lap - picking it up at lights, putting it down again, and are a bit more distracted than before.
Any other cyclists experiencing this?
(And note, I have zero interest in 'advice' or 'constructive criticism' from drivers - there are a million other threads where I can find this).
