Do this

At junctions, try to move to the centre of the driver’s line of sight. They will concentrate on what’s in the middle of their vision, not what’s in their peripheral vision.

Don’t do this

Approach every junction as though you’re invisible. It will lead to such a hard and frustrating life on a bike that you’ll want to give up and buy yourself a van.
