So biking is supposed to make me a better person right?
I came very close to getting bumped.
1- I am on my way home about 515pm. So it is daylight and i am visible. Normally i ride home in the dark.
2- My motto is don't trust a driver, and i trusted one.
3- I should of been a bit more patient.
4- i didn't plan to pass through the intersection with a vehicle running interference for me.
1/2 way home between two traffic light intersections is a road coming up from town on my side of the road. It is a busy road and often used by drivers to avoid jams and the lights. There is not much traffic, which means I have to wait for a car to run interference, but there don't seem to be cars coming up the feeder road, so i ride across. A sedan comes fast up to turn into my lane. i slow and brake and then she brakes a sliver away from me.
I react badly screaming " Don't you have any humanity" yep i said something like that. She is shocked by what happened.
What can you do ? I ride on and she passes by and slows and says " I am so very sorry".
That helps. But it helps more that she will probably not run the stop sign like that for a few days.
