Doesn’t hurt to post a second time, as it’s good info. It was discussed before in another thread (for reference): http://bike-pgh.org/bbpress/topic/swissvale-hit-and-run

Thank you for posting that. A PAT busdriver friend of mine told me that the Port Authority buses have a blind spot in the right rear of the buses.

well as this is at least the second time I’ve reposted, unknowingly, it seems I choose a good user tag :)

No harm in double posting; I point it out since many are unlikely to respond to the same video a second time.

If you can’t see their eyes in their mirrors, they can’t see you. This really is a fantastic video. Looks to be the British equivalent of a wide right-hand turn with bikes in the right lane.

a friend drives big rigs for a living – I asked him about drafting (for a car on the highway).

He basically said the same thing – if you cant see him, the driver, in the left side mirror, he can’t see you. Make sure that every so often you ‘pop out and make yourself known’.
