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>

if you're in a car, for instance, people generally don't pull out in front of you (too often),

Pretty much a daily thing in my experience, my default condition when driving is "assume the other road users have no brain and are actively trying to make me claim on my insurance".

Most of the time it's "can't be arsed to wait" or (this is a mini-roundabout special) "what!!! You're going round it rather than straight across, commie!!!"
