This is a common incident; a driver concentrates on the car and pulls out and fails to notice the bike, or cyclist.
The positioning of the car gave me indication if the driver was going to turn left or carry on around the roundabout. I pulled up close the the car but the driver didn't look at me, even with my headlight in his face. Had he seen me or was he ignoring me? I decided to let him go first.
It was only when I could see the back of the car did I see the L plate. Was he a learner driver? Was he insured? Just as worrying was the thought that he was a qualified driver who was teaching someone else?

Mind yourself if you come across LR11 UAC during your travels
Another road user who thinks they are above the law and use a mobile phone whilst driving.
To get his attention I pointed at him and he did lower the phone and then wave to me. I hope this makes him think next time.

Keep a look out for EA12 DFY.
