Prepared for the unexpected.
5 p.m. Rush hour. Heavy city traffic. Cars, vans, buses and motorbikes are filtering on to the main road. Drivers wanting to turn left have to get in the correct lane before the intersection, and one road user wants to park on the right. There is a big danger of assessing speeds wrongly or even overlooking another road user. That is why the driver keeps a watchful eye on the traffic. But unfortunately the driver does not see the cyclist who has used the footpath as a shortcut and makes the mistake of crossing the road quickly after the lights have just turned red.
Even an experienced driver could then easily have an accident with potentially dramatic consequences.
