    I've about had it with missing head ons by seconds as they just barely pull back onto their side of the road in time. It's also more than just frustrating that stop signs really have become optional for most people.

    And what's with people pulling out in front of traffic and then leisurely moseying up to speed? I mean, I'm in a HUGE FUCKING TRUCK - do you not see it? It's bright red. Get your ass moving.

    Has happened 3 times this week alone.

    Or the ones that pull onto an interstate with traffic moving along at ~70 and they just mosey into the middle lane apparently without even looking causing all sorts of other vehicles to stand on the brakes. That happened twice today

    Oh, and self-driving cars solve most of these problems. Hell... probably all of them.

    I, for one, welcome our robot overlords.

    I've had people get *pissed* at me when I haven't been ABLE to move over on the hwy. It's like they don't know it's THEIR responsibility to merge safely.

    Assholes. Self-driving cars solve this too.

    And traffic.

    Wow, that gal got really lucky. Clearly paying zero attention, just casually rolling through a red not even pedaling.

    That's nothing. You need to go and look on Liveleak for "bike accident china".

    ^^^^^^^Suhweeet... My fucking town. Frankly amazed shit like this doesn't happen more frequently. All wrong on the cyclist. ( I got no issues with them in general ). People winging it through that intersection frequently. If I was driving I'da lit into him/ her. Cops... , fix my truck, ticket for you etc.

    - The truck turning across in front of rider is in the red so way late on riders part.

    Same with pedestrians here. No look both ways before crossing, Just assume you got Right of way and plunge in, head down on the phone. I have told more than a few how I might get in trouble for hitting them but my bumper is prolly gonna crush your pelvis so make the call.

    Ouch on the wrist. Damn gnarly lookin. Gots to be broken.

    Sweet new Toyota. Driver gets out and says' What the Fuck'! I'm sure of it. I'da hucked the bike to the curb too.

    I get honked at weekly by drivers in GJ because I'm not riding on the sidewalk despite it being illegal. Its 3 miles to the TH and 3 miles back, I'm more terrified of being on the road then I am riding Lunch Loops. Grand Junction may have some of the best riding in the state but the people/town fucking blow.

    On my way home from work Friday afternoon I approached a 4-way stop on two low-traffic side streets. Slightly uphill grade, speed was about 10 mph, with excellent visibility in all directions. I'm going straight, no peds in sight, no cross traffic in sight, only car around was a big diesel pickup in the oncoming lane 30-40 yds out from the other side of the intersection. So, like a reasonable person I rolled right through it.

    I reach the other side of the intersection and the driver of the pickup, who is still 10 yards from the stop sign and does not have a blinker on, leans out his window and says, "Hey! There's a stop sign there, SHITHEAD!" at the top of his fucking lungs, like I had just threaded the needle between multiple moms pushing baby strollers at 30 mph. I should have just told him to have a nice day, but was a bit taken aback and flipped the bird and told him to fuck off. I could then hear him yelling, "You sumbitch! Get back here!" I fully expected him to make a U-turn and chase me down, but thankfully he didn't. That was weird.

    Commute into work this morning. Turned onto a street (1-way, bike lane in right hand side) that I'm on for 3 blocks before turning left. 1/2 way through the first block a car with blinkers on is blocking the bike lane. At this point, I just move across all the lanes to the far left since I'm making a left turn shortly and traffic is clear.

    On the last block before I turn left an SUV runs up behind me, starts honking and tailgating. Dude then watches me turn left, turns left too, and gets stopped at the same stoplight as me on the next street, where he proceeds to roll down his window and shout all kinds of nasties at me about using bike lanes, not allowed in left lane, etc etc etc.

    Fuck Drivers.

    maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but it sounds like -- on a street with a bike lane -- you rode 2 1/2 blocks in the left lane? Sounds like the SUV should have had the opportunity to get ahead of you, but couldn't? Sure, he might only have gained 3 seconds of time, and it wasn't worth berating you over, but it sounds like you were in the wrong (and in my view, "in the wrong" in car/bike interactions is where the biker is not obeying traffic rules AND that results in slowing down a driver that is obeying traffic rules).

    Totally allowable in CO bike law. No where in CO law are you required to ride in the bike lane at all times: http://colobikelaw.com/coloradolaw.html . I was reasonably preparing for a left-turn when it was easy to move across traffic, rather than interrupt multiple cars as I crossed 3 lanes of traffic a block later.

    "A person operating a bicycle or an electrical assisted bicycle upon a one-way roadway with two or more marked traffic lanes may ride as near to the left-hand curb or edge of such roadway as judged safe by the bicyclist, subject to the following conditions:
    - If the left-hand lane then available for traffic is wide enough to be safely shared with overtaking vehicles, a bicyclist shall ride far enough to the left as judged safe by the bicyclist to facilitate the movement of such overtaking vehicles unless other conditions make it unsafe to do so.
    A bicyclist shall not be expected or required to:
    - Ride over or through hazards at the edge of a roadway, including but not limited to fixed or moving objects, parked or moving vehicles, bicycles, pedestrians, animals, surface hazards, or narrow lanes; or
    - Ride without a reasonable safety margin on the left-hand side of the roadway."

    Sounds like you took over the left lane, held up traffic, and then turned left a couple blocks later. correct?

    Maybe i am reading it wrong.

    Correction: I held up one driver, for less than one block, in the left lane of traffic on a one way (legal in CO) before making a left hand turn. Said driver then proceeded to spew bullshit that isn't true in CO and generally ruin my pleasant morning commute.

    Is it now one block or two? Share the road buddy, nobody cares what the law says. Then again, that driver can go fuck themselves nothing you did was that bad.

    I saw a few bikers blow through a busy intersection in SF this month. They were hauling ass, Iíve never seen anything like it for blowing through anything before at that speed. Cars were waiting for them, then it looked clear so this mom and kid in a car slowly went through and another biker blew through the stop sign and almost hit her. The mom had her window down already calmly said something like, ĎHey, you shoulda stopped!í Biker girl yelled at her from two feet away, ďWe donít stop, bitch!!Ē

    So many clowns biking these days, go back to driving you are making it bad for the rest of us.

    Yeah, I regretted it immediately. Unfotunately I reacted viscerally before my rational brain could step in.

    Right there in the first post. It was 2 1/2 blocks that I was in the left lane. But he only was in the lane for the last block after turning onto the street.

    The problem is no one cares what the law says and everyone wants to cite the law when they feel wronged.
