Cyclists often rightly complain that other road users don't always see them. This is a problem - a number of collisions occur when vehicles pull out or cut across in front of them.

But this case is different: Cyclist doesn't see stationary van.

nil nisi bonum and all that, but <cynical>I can only think that, the van being stopped at a pedestrian crossing, the cyclist was too intent on running the red light and knocking over a pedestrian or two ...</cynical>

I ran into the back of a Smart stopped at a zebra crossing

If the Smart hadn't been there, would you have overrun the crossing, though? Judging by the lack of damage, I'd guess not, which distinguishes you from this cyclist.
