    No . Spain seems bad for it for some reason

    Spain’s the safest place I’ve ridden.

    Italy had a lot of dangerous driving . A lot . The UK has got a lot better in some places worse in others . Probably true elsewhere . London drivers are a lot better now .

    I ride everyday and feel safer riding now I live in Spain except roundabouts and junctions. The Spanish all seem to slam on the brakes at the last moment instead of slowing down on the approach and if they see you at the last moment it’s too late you’re toast.

    Maybe the driver didn't like someone tailgating all the way only to overtake just as he was getting home.
