Take primary, cover your brakes then watch the wheels, never the driver, you'll see them moving before you realise the vehicle is, as for the driver don't think they have seen you or care they will be looking straight through you most likely, this type of offending accounts for
75% of car vs cycle #KSIs & is always the drivers fault as they pull in front of a road user who has right of way when they enter or leave a junction.
Some drivers depending on their personal awareness only "look" for other cars as that's their only "threat",motorcyclists suffer
the same offending behaviours. At the point of pulling out of the junction the cyclist is easy to see, if you hold your fist out in front of you that's how big they appear roughly. If you want to know more about why some people don't see them due to not "looking" properly read

anyway unless placed at problem sites. Traffic officer numbers decreased dramatically from 2011/12 not 2016, if they had explored the earlier years they would have discovered a much larger decrease. Then we come to existing traffic officer numbers, most are in a ANPR intercept
role or share other roles such as ARV duties, thus do very little core traffic work but count as traffic officers on a headcount. Drink driving, well there's less tests as cuts have consequences, most drink drive arrests are proactive but due to high demand officers
