Suggestion to reduce likelihood of incident: some kind of warning sign about strong wind, and a suggestion to get off and walk in strong wind?

They drove straight ahead down Owhiro road to Brooklyn, cutting me off and missing me by centimetres. I was wearing a bright orange day pack with very bright flashing lights rear and front. The road was wet and slippery and I heard the car coming from behind at speed. I think the brief moment I stopped pedalling probably saved me from being hit by them as they crossed in front of me, at an estimated speed of 60-70 kmh .||-41.302762771161, 174.76427489872||Bicycle||Problematic pass (usually too close)|

This is a really common occurrence - the crossing needs to be moved further north or road design needs changing so that drivers go slower/the crossing is noticed more by drivers.||-41.322244981844, 174.7752338733||Pedestrian|

|291||Bus driver of 35 bus was leaving Courtney Place, and heading to turn off to Elizabeth Street via Kent Terrace. He left Courtney Place from the right lane (as less traffic than the left lane - I assume so he could speed through the yellow lights at the last minute). He then immediately proceeded to cross two of the 3 lanes over to 14 Kent Terrace, where I was biking in the lane, nearest the parked cars. Without looking he continued to move across to the lane closest to the parked cars, wedging me between them and the side of the bus - he was so close that there was around 10 cm space between my bike and the side of his bus. It was only for my taking evasive braking action that I was not killed. No professional driver would drive with such a poor level of skill and lack of capability, unless deliberately wishing to apply malice to other road users.||-41.294631313949, 174.7840625||Bicycle||Vehicle pulls out or across cyclist|

|274||This is part of the official southbound cycle route (avoiding the motor way) and it's a terrible spot. Riding south, it's a two lane road. The right hand lane turns into a turning only lane into South Road. Locals know this and pick their lane early, visitors are totally surprised and flabbergasted: and act accordingly. As a cyclist, riding on the left of the left hand lane in order to meet expectations to be on the left means a relatively dangerous crossing maneuver to end up in the turning lane.
Today, because traffic was heavy, I slipped into the turning lane a little earlier than usual, approx. where indicated and in the last few tens of meters before the turn was overtaken on the left and right simultaneously. Needless to say, that is scary.
I don't know why motor vehicle drivers are in such a hurry to not have a few seconds to give a cyclist a bit of room.
This intersection needs some attention, especially because it's part of the official way out of town for bikes.

|253||Was cycling the speed limit (~50km/h) downhill, car crossed center lane to pass me at speed with <30cm space. This put my bike off balance and nearly caused a crash, a crash at this speed on a bike going downhill would have been a serious injury.
Once the car was in front of me we continued at the same speed as each other and arrived at Island Bay shops at exactly the same time. The driver endangered my life and gained absolutely nothing.
