I would like to thank everyone who stopped at the incident and helped me, I've just gotten home from the hospital and it is believed I will not be able to walk for 2 months, this matter will be followed up with the police.

Typically British. Blame the weather. Blame the road. Blame anything but one or more of the people involved.

@minig25 Pleased to hear it's not more serious - though 2 months to get back on your feet is bad enough.

I don't know, those traffic lights are more likely to blame. It lets traffic along the chickerell link road to turn left into the granby, while at the same time letting vehicles from the granby go out. Daft a design as it is. They both had right of way at the same time, normally it just requires eyesight and common sense. Sadly in the dark the car probably didn't spot the motorbike.

All conjecture mind you. All I saw was the traffic jam.

The lights and junction are perfect, if you are a capable driver there should be no cause for concern with this junction, the only thing to blame would be one of the motorists not taking notice of the lights! like thousands of drivers a day manage to do without any problems.

I see many drivers at that junction going through red lights or not indicating.
