U turn nearly wipes out cyclist

Many car drivers seem not to see cyclists. I was nearly wiped recently out when turning right on a green arrow. I’m still a bit shaken. The truck came straight through the red light (for him) right at me and I abortedv my right hand turn just in time. Maybe some drivers genuinely do not see what they do not expect to see, or they are careless, but some just treat bikes as vermin.
Not surprising when a shock-jock says publicly cyclists are “cockroaches”.
Regard all cars with suspicion!
Use the footpaths in danger spots. A fine is cheaper than a funeral!
