214 I was cycling in the right lane, to prepare to turn right. The traffic light ahead was red. A driver then undertook me on the left, straddling both lanes, before cutting back into my lane requiring me to swerve onto the flush median to avoid him. -41.278806965932, 174.7796297226 Bicycle Problematic pass (usually too close)
213 Near Miss (NEAR FATALITY!)
Cycling NW Bikeway crossing Lincoln Rd from W to E. Saw Green Cycle and proceeded to cross, not realising that the green was not for the slip road. Car misses my front wheel by a few cm. He was travelling around 80km/hr.
If I had been 1 sec earlier I would have been dead.
Bad intersection design, doesn't comply with road to zero.

211 Driver in white van passed us (two cyclists) far too closely entering the wide bend, then cut back abruptly in front of us to move back into left lane. The pass could have been completed safely by waiting just 5 - 10 seconds until we had passed around the bend. -41.304381818178, 174.81549756803 Bicycle Problematic pass (usually too close)
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

203 Approaching Campbell Rd from Onehunga Mall, moved to the centre of the lane to go straight ahead at the roundabout to Cornwall Park. Car squeezes past me and does a left hook into Campbell Rd. Apparently it was my fault for not indicating and riding in the middle of the road. 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
