The problem is that if you need the manual to inform you about the right thing to do, it won't be able to help you.

Note that the Oregon Driver's Manual has an entire section on how to treat cyclists. http://www.odot.state.or.us/forms/dmv/37.pdf

I suspect most states have similar provisions. If everyone actually followed them, half of the threads in BF wouldn't exist.

The Oregon manual is even available in multiple languages. I just realized something. I don't think I've ever been harassed by someone in a language other than English or by someone who seemed to be a foreigner.
