A Really Good Pass!

0:01 Car approaches from behind but can't see so hangs well back.
0:05 I can see and indicate for car to pass
0:09 Driver can see
0:11 Driver passes according to Highway Code 163

By hanging well back the driver is not harrassing me. Harrassment can lead to accidents as cyclists get scared they are about to be hit. Because I can hear the driver taking my life seriously, I try my best to help them pass, so signal a lot earlier than the driver can see. The driver does hold back still but is aware that they can pass so readys themselves. As they pass sensibly, I give a thumbs up and they wave back. Thus there are two road users happy, relaxed, unstressed human beings. Had there been a rush to pass, the result would have saved a second or so and two grumpy, stressed, unpleasant human beings. Which is better, eh?
