So when you used the term "fact", you really meant "opinion" and ignore the posting of evidence of facts. There's some non-research explanation on the recent thread viewtopic.php?f=7&t=110955

Your ears are rear end defenders - keep them free of clutter - use them in conjunction with your eyes.

I understand but don't accept that an anonymous person's vague and unsubstantiated experience defines something as "fact" when it is contrary to better evidence from attributed, published research.

I was not talking about " an anonymous person's vague and unsubstantiated experience" I was relating to me and only me having seen with both of my perfectly good eyes - now if that was/is not fact - then what the hell is ?

Stuff you can measure or describe and reliably reproduce, like aggregation of recorded factors contributing to collisions and the rarity of cyclist headphones in that. Here, you are anonymous (or more accurately pseudonymous) and while you may know what you think you saw and that your expression of them is unambiguous, it wouldn't be the first time that such things misled people.

If you carry on with that 'fact' you also stated 'they passed you' presumably without incident or accident?
if you just stand still you can never lose your way
