Transport for London has produced a clever series of videos urging us all to pay closer attention while driving and to look out for cyclists. See additional videos that test our observational skills here.
As a teenager, I took a drivers' education course. The instructor called paying attention to details around us "defensive driving." This of course involves watching out for other drivers - and cyclists - to make unexpected and potentially dangerous moves. The lesson still applies, as evidenced in Transport for London's excellent videos.
