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.

237 Driver fails to give way to me at roundabout, and then a couple of hundred later starts intimidating me with his horn, wanting to overtake through a pinch point on a zebra crossing.

-----------------

Elderly driver of White 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe seems to not be familiar with how to give way at a roundabout, nor how to safely overtake cyclists without intimidation over a zebra crossing.

Lots of nice hand gestures as he passed - he did seem very angry.

I think he took exception to me asserting my right of way over the roundabout, and I assume then expected me to stop so he could overtake? Puzzling, aggressive and unskilled driving.

233 A young teenager - looked 13-14? on his manual scooter rode down Wellesley St hill full speed and rode into the oncoming bus lane to do a jump trick onto the crowded footpath. The oncoming bus was lucky to slow down and stop as it had stopped at a bus stop. The teenager's friends then followed on their scooters down the hill on the footpath cheering the teenager on. The bus driver gave a stern look to the teenager but no action was taken on preventing the kid to do it again. -36.851007141377, 174.7644051893 Pedestrian

228 Passing through the gap in the fence to leave the cycle path/footpath onto the road. The fence is tight, i was travelling at speed and I turned too sharp, the result was the front wheel washing out and i went over the handlebars onto the road. Bruised and concussed. The main fault was rider error, although a nicer exit onto Patterson Street would prevent the need for tight turns and be safer in terms of looking out for cars. -41.301204507175, 174.7831195275 Bicycle Other (please add information in the textarea below)

220 Pedestrian walked down centre of cycleway making no effort to walk to the pedstrian footpath on hutt road, i was heading south as was the pedestrian so had her back to me. I kept left of her but slowed just in case she moved towards the footpath. A cyclist heading north which she saw made her quickly move into my line so I had to take evasive action to move around her right, directly inline with the northbound cyclist. He skidded past and I got very clise to her as anymore to the right we would have collided. Pedestrian blocked the view and took most of the focus from the other cyclists as she was unpredictable in what she would do. Myself and the other cyclist stopped and looked back to make all was ok then carried on. -41.261323513932, 174.7886882 Bicycle Other (please add information in the textarea below)

215 Incident at the lights where a car ran a red arrow and cut me off. Car was travelling North along the one way st of Cumberland St and was turning right into St Andrew St. There are lights at this intersection to stop cars for cyclists but cars more often than not ignore it and cut the cyclists off. A very dangerous intersection.

209 Observed a car overtake a bicycle. Bike was following Victoria street towards Brooklyn hill. Car in left hand lane overtook and then turned left into Webb st cutting off cyclist. It was close. Idiot!

That block of Victoria street is ridiculously unsafe. Cycle lane ends at Karo drive, and dumps cyclists to a lane with drivers splitting two directions

Apart from the fact that I was legally "taking the lane" and that you are not meant to signal when going straight at a roundabout, only at the exit. I advised her to read the road code. -36.908747879988, 174.78345763859 Bicycle Road user turns across cyclist’s path
