Take care when you are out cycling in Paris

"Angles Morts" in French literally menas "deadly angles", but "blind spots" is probably a more correct interpretation. The angles morts are the blind spots radiating out from cars and trucks. Cyclists are not visible if they are in these blind spots, and when vehicles are turning, cyclists run a very high risk of getting killed by the vehicle in question. That is why "Angles Morts" is the name of this 8-minute long YouTube video clip, which looks like it was composed of many takes of the dangers for cyclists on Parisian roads and especially the bicycle lanes. A fascinating vid, and in my opinion well worth a watch.
