Australian drivers the worst: Cadel Evans

THERE’S nowhere that Cadel Evans feels less safe on his bike than in Australia….abused by motorists and is bemused by just how much aggro exists on the roads…”I’ve cycled every continent, other than Antarctica, and it’s incredible. Drivers in America and Australia just have attitudes. I don’t necessarily say attitudes towards cyclists, but towards other road users …people just don’t realise the danger they’re causing other people.”..worst offenders…very young and very old drivers. He despairs that cyclists have to contend with people throwing bottles and driving dangerously close to them…His worst nightmare is a car towing a trailer wider than the vehicle. “They’re shocking. I’ve nearly had my leg torn off so many times because of that, and people are just completely unaware of it.”
