A few years ago, I nearly hit a cyclist on an unfamiliar road because of large, badly parked vehicles. An HGV was parked on the left hand side of the road, the bin wagon on the right hand side, leaving just enough space for me to squeeze through (a bus or even a large van would have had the place gridlocked.) A cyclist shot right out in front of my car - I braked and sounded my horn, wondering what the idiot was up to. Once I was properly clear of the vehicles and had a chance to look around me, I realised I was on a junction and must have just driven through a set of red lights that was totally obscured by both vehicles.

Fortunately, it was only a near miss, I bet if it hadn't been it would have been entirely my fault.
