eventually I came up against a van in a narrow lane and he didn't realise the width of my trike right until he got very close.
Did you not have any lights on the mudguard? Your trike looks to be 1500mm or more wide so it should of had them to be road legal I believe.
Depends on where your headlights are mounted.
