Anyone who has ridden a bike knows what likely *really* happened here. In any case, isn’t it the overtaking vehicle’s responsibility to avoid the vehicle they are overtaking?
As I was making the left onto Beeler last night, a car gunned its engine and roared by me on the left before we even finished the turn. It was a cop – well at least he gave me a decent margin… Just the kind of dumb crap that happens every day, until that one time the driver f*s it up and kills you. Oops… of course I meant until that one time you ride into the side of the car and kill yourself – what was I thinking?
this is getting out of control. I realize that since it is summer there are more people riding but it seems like everyday I hear about another cyclist getting tagged. saw a rider almost get creamed by a burgundy suv on penn in town while I was waiting for the bus. I thought the guy was going to get off his bike and throw it thru the windshield.
I don’t know about you but I get pretty tense just getting on my bike
