When you are overtaking a cyclist you should leave as much room as you would give to a car. What is the main reason for this?

A The cyclist might swerve
Before overtaking assess the situation. Look well ahead to see if the cyclist will need to change direction. Be especially aware of the cyclist approaching parked vehicles as they will need to alter course. Do not pass too closely or cut in sharply.
B The cyclist might speed up
C The cyclist might get off the bike
D The cyclist might have to make a left turn
