--- So today I was cycling in town and needed to get into the traffic lane on my left so I glanced over my shoulder and saw a van approaching with no other vehicles behind it. So I let the van pass and as soon as I saw its rear bumper I quick switched left and almost ran into a small trailer it was towing.
The bulk of the approaching van had blocked my view of its trailer behind. Close call. Learn from my mistake folks.
