Recently a child cyclist came out of the alleyway that runs between Taupo View and the Kimberley reserve and collided with my moving car. Fortunately, the child escaped with minor grazes but was thrown some metres. The issue is that cyclists ride down from Taupo View and can simply duck down to ride under the pipes that are meant to slow them at the end of the alleyway. This often means that they ride straight across the road section without slowing or looking for cars. Cars driving this section cannot see cyclist riding at this speed until they have exited. Concerned that this will happen again as have observed cyclists riding this way repeatedly. What can be done to reduce the likelihood of this happening please?
