Nearly Got Myself Killed

Nearly got myself knocked off my bike on Sunday. At first I thought it was the fault of the driver, who seemingly turned left into an off-road from the roundabout which I was trying to cycle across. Then I drove across that roundabout later that day, and realised that the furthest left (inside) lane is for turning left only, not going straight across, which I was trying to do, as I would normally go straight across a roundabout on the left hand side of the road.

So who was in the wrong? Me, probably, although I didn't signal left, and maybe the driver should have picked that up.

The moral of the story: always check how the lane is marked - or, alternatively, avoid big roundabouts like the plague.
