"I am relieved that no one was hurt, but this incident reinforces the need for us to make London's roads safer for cyclists, which I am determined to do and to make London the best city for cyclists in Europe. Cycle Super Highways, which are part of our record investment in cycling, will play a central role in this, providing clearly demarcated routes for cyclists that lorry drivers and others will be aware of."

—London mayor Boris Johnson, talking about the accident he avoided yesterday when a truck nearly dragged a car into the path of his bike. Click on link for video.
