As the weather improves and we all get back on our bikes and enjoy the roads, it is essential that cyclists remain vigilant at all times.  This is particularly important when waiting at a junction on the highway.  More cycle accidents happen at junctions than at any other place on the roads.  Whether its people misjudging speeds, not indicating or not looking properly, these are hot spots for cycle accidents and extra vigilance is essential.
