Myopic motoring

Posted on Tue, Dec 6, 2011 at 10:54 AM

This is less a "bitch," more an earnest public service announcement to the drivers of our city. Many motorists around here see a bike in front of them and think "MUST PASS," regardless of how fast the cyclist is going or what's ahead of them both. I was cycling north on Robie during rush hour today. Not stop-and-go traffic, but pretty slow going. There is no need to inch up dangerously close alongside me -- I'm going just as fast as the car in front. What are you gonna do, pass me, then fly over everyone else? Same goes for four-way stops. More than once on Vernon I've had someone whip around me only to screech to a halt at the stop sign ten metres ahead. —Ben
